RUN LIKE A WOLF

Sun August 1 - Tue August 31
Run With Wild Wolf V094

August 18, 2021

On August 12, Wolf V094 joined 57 other 100 Mile Challenge participants in completing his 100 miles! Congratulations to those who reached their 100 miles before or on August 12...you ran like a wolf! 

Take a load off, V094. And congratulations!

Wolf V094's numbers are in for the first stretch of Run Like a Wolf, and he's already speeding towards his 100-mile goal! On August 1st and 2nd, V094 completed almost 20 collective miles. In two days, he's made it one-fifth of the way to finishing his challenge! While many challengers are still on Wolf V094's tail or trailing far behind, a few incredible runners have already completed their 100 miles: Jacqueline Pettersen (Prince George, British Columbia), Walter Franchini (Milan, Italy), and Bobby Caldwell (Connecticut, United States). 

But, Wolf V094 isn't just racing against humans...he has some other species to contend with, too. Along with a few canine challengers, Wolf V094 is up against one fiesty noodle: Zeek the Ferret. With almost 17 miles already under his belt, Zeek isn’t too far behind V094. Good thing this is a virtual battle, where inter-species competition is always friendly!

Keep up with our human and animal participants on the results page.

Can you keep up with a wolf?

This August, you'll be competing with a real wild gray wolf, wolf V094! V094 is a GPS-collared wolf living in northern Minnesota and being monitored by Voyageurs Wolf Project. V094 is estimated to be 4-5 years old and weighs 77lbs. He and his mate took over the Bowman Bay Pack territory in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem in fall 2019. The pair has since produced two litters of pups, including a BIG 8-pup litter in spring 2021 (see the adorable offspring here).

With a huge territory and the ability to travel up to 30 miles in a single day, wolf V094 is about to serve some pretty tough competition! Be sure to keep up with his progress by visiting the Results page starting August 1st and searching Wolf V094 or bib number 530.

Good luck, V094!
