Feral Pig Ultra
November 4, 2023 - November 5, 2023
You may have heard of the Feral and you want to be bold,
We know it will be hot cos it’s never bloody cold!
Once a year this event comes around for us all
Is now the time for you to stand up and be tall?
So you’re new to the trails and you want to explore,
You’ve seen parts of the hills and you want to see more.
You’re an old hand at trails and you need a new test,
You want climbs. You want trails and views that are best.
Your inner Feral is calling and you want to commit,
If you want epic and challenging, then this is legit.
The Pork Chop at 23k is great for a start,
The stairs and the climbs will raise the beat of your heart.
The Sow 50k is cruel with the midday sun,
You start at noon which sounds not so much fun.
But as the day progresses and the sun starts to fall,
The views and colours through the valleys are the best of them all.
Or is the Boar 50 Miler calling your name?
Are you crazy or weird or just a little insane?
You run all through the day from dawn to sunset,
At 80 odd k this could be your longest run yet!
But why stop at 80 when there’s the 100k Wild Swine,
You get to pass twice through that teasing finish line!
But that bonus few k going past the weir,
Takes in magical trails and makes you earn that beer!
The pinnacle of them all is the 100 Mile Feral Pig,
They say go home or go hard, test yourself and go big.
It takes you to places heavenly and evil so be ready,
This is not for one to be arrogant, so be smart and be steady.
100 Miles on those trails takes courage and grit,
Yes, you need to be strong, but more importantly mental fit.
But that glory of the finish which has thus far only seen few
Is worth it for that finish line hug given from me to you.
Now the time has come for you to set your race plan,
Choose your distance and goals and dream like you can.
So chuck on your runners and prepare your happy dance,
Cos all we are saying is give pigs a chance.
