The Wild Series is an Old Mutual sponsored series of endurance sporting events organised by Wild Series and which raise funds for conservation projects around South Africa.
The trail running and mountain biking events take place in a variety of breath-taking and often wild locations. They range from one-day to three-day events, catering for the adventurous sports enthusiast. All events are family friendly and cater for families with KidZone facilities at most of the races.
The five-event portfolio includes Three Cranes Challenge, the iMfolozi MTB Challenge, the Mont-Aux-Sources Challenge, the Kruger2Canyon Challenge and the Golden Gate Challenge.
South Africa is a land of contrast. One of the most naturally diverse countries in the world, it is blessed with magnificent landscapes and truly incredible biodiversity. However, it is also one of the most socially disparate nations of the world. We’re also rapidly transforming and destroying our natural support systems as we struggle with the challenge of surviving under very tough social and economic circumstances.
Wildlands works at this interface and has the privilege of making an increasingly significant contribution towards balancing this disparity.
All the Wildlands interventions compliment South Africa’s progressive shift to a “Green Economy.” This work is continually being done in partnership with local communities, also instilling a sense of local ownership and ensuring sustainability.
Important in all of this has been the commitment to co-creating and partnership. Realizing that the environmental crisis is too big for any organisation to address by itself, Wildlands prides itself in its growing relationship with government, the corporate community and civil society in collectively finding answers for current environmental issues.
