The early days of FWP will focus on harnessing the community we know best, by focusing on trail running and the existing relationships and extensive experience we have within the sport.
Bringing people together through our proposed Wild100 movement will allow For Wild Places to solidify our place within the industry, and bring about significant change within the first 12 months of operation. Lessons learned from the Wild100 will allow FWP to expand into community programs such as camps, boutique events and an online hub for those wanting to harness their agency. Our campaigns and efforts will slowly gain momentum and allow For Wild Places to make our mission and vision a reality.
Founded by a small and driven group of outdoor enthusiasts, For Wild Places is a collective of runners, hikers, mountain bikers and surfers with a common goal of transforming a shared passion for outdoor sports into collective environmental activism. Together, we set off on a journey to turn passionate outdoor people into wild place advocates. Welcome to the world of Sports Activism and the first day on the rest of our journey. We strive to be a living organism, always learning and evolving.
Our hope is that your ideas push us to better represent the people, places and sports that drives us. Exploring this site is a great way to understand what we’re about right now.
