  • 2018-05-01 08:00:00 2018-05-01 08:00:00 Run Wild 24 Hour Trail Running and Music Festival <p><span style="font-size: 24px;">* New Date in May of 2018 to be announced soon!</span></p> <p>The Run Wild 24 hour Trail Run and Music Festival is a 24, 12 or 6 hour timed race event. Your run is measured on miles traveled rather than on your finishing time. The course will consist of six miles of gorgeous, fall-colored single-track trail divided into two 3 mile loops with course timing and live results, a plentiful aid station, camping, food trucks and a sound stage with amazing live local bands, all in the race epicenter after each loop. <br /><br />This is an event designed for ALL ages and capabilities. You can run - or walk - or eat and sleep - as much and as often as you like. You can do this as a SOLO event - or organize a TEAM with as many people as you would like and divide up the hours and miles, one of you running while the other peeps enjoy the live music and local food trucks. Hand off as often as you choose. Teams can also compete in a Team Theme Competition: wear your wildest crazy outfits or support your own individual causes and win some fun takeaways.<br /><br />TEAMS ARE PRICED AS an initial entry fee plus a fee per additional member.<br /><br />Event proceeds will benefit the Mad Anthony Children's Hope House - serving families by saving them considerable time, energy and dollars in travel and overnight lodging while their children undergo lifesaving treatments at area hospitals.The Hope House offers families who would otherwise sleep in cars and hospital lobbies a safe haven at a donation of $10 per day &#8211; and no family is turned away for the inability to pay. Believe it or not, many families are unable to afford even this small donation, so this event truly helps people in need.<br /><br />Come join us for this Festive and Fun Trail Run, Camping and Music Event in beautiful Franke Park just north of downtown Fort Wayne, IN! Bring friends, kids, family or strangers and enjoy a day of live music and a night of urban camping under the stars!</p> 3411 Sherman Boulevard Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
