A Wildlands initiative, the Wild Series was established to profile South Africa’s spectacular natural heritage while raising funds for key conservation projects. These events provide participants with the opportunity of running or mountain biking through some of our most beautiful, wildness location and have raised millions for conservation in the process. From protecting the African Wild Dog and the Bearded Vulture to incredible adventures through awe-inspiring landscapes – the Wild Series challenges are about more than just sports.
Wildlands has partnered with the Old Mutual Foundation for many years in championing a cleaner, greener environment and a sustainable future for all. Recently, this partnership was taken a step further when Old Mutual was announced as the proud new title sponsor of the Wild Series. “Old Mutual has always believed in partnerships that support a worthy cause and Wildlands’ initiatives are dedicated to giving back to conservation, protecting our heritage and securing our future.”
In 2018, the first Old Mutual WILDSERIES event to take place is the Three Cranes Challenge in February – with a special treat in store for lucky runners. Day two of the three day run will take participants through Benvie Gardens, a 135-year-old botanical garden that was established in 1882. Once in the gardens, runners will be able to take a “time out” and enjoy cakes and sandwiches served on the owners best china.
