If there’s a better sounding fitness event than the Wolf Run, we’ve not heard about it. Ironman sounds a bit too extreme and solitary (which it is). This is all about the pack mentality and taking your body to the limit over some very different terrain.

The "wolf" in question stands for woods, obstacles, lakes and fields, and that tells you everything you need to know about this new type of exercise. The pack bit signifies that this is not strictly a race - the camaraderie of finishing the punishing cross-country course is more important than who finishes first.

This weekend is the first event, and if you’re a gym bunny who fancies something involving a bit more fresh air, or a road runner who fancies a new challenge, you can still apply at www.thewolfrun.com.

If you think it’s something you’d like to try, but maybe with a bit more notice, they’re already taking bookings for April 2012. Much more manageable in this couch potato’s opinion…
