Aussie Grit Apparel Collaborates With New Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge
Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Australia’s luxury conservation-based nature resort has launched the Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge, a stunning 21-kilometre trail run in the rugged Greater Blue Mountains region west of Sydney.
We are thrilled to be the Technical Apparel Partner for the Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge supporting guests to venture out of their comfort zone and conquer the landscape. The challenge allows resort guests to explore the stunning Wolgan Valley like never before.
Runners will receive an Aussie Grit Apparel technical running top in their entrant packs for the exclusive course which is restricted to just 10 runners per month in an effort to preserve the pristine natural environment and minimise environmental impact.
“For so many of our guests, a visit to Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley is a rare opportunity to connect with nature through our amazing programme of outdoor activities, such as horseback riding, bike riding and hiking trails,” says James Wyndham, General Manager of the One&Only Resort in Wolgan Valley.
“We are excited to be the first ultra-luxury resort in Australia to offer an experience like the Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge, giving our active guests the chance to really push their physical limits in this stunning natural environment, whilst still being able to enjoy all the resort has to offer.”
The course will link three of the valley’s iconic peaks for off-track hiking and trail running: Razorback Ridge (277m elevation from the valley floor), Mount Wolgan (294m elevation from the valley floor), and Donkey Mountain (365m elevation from the valley floor). Guests will be led through this incredible course by a dedicated Field Guide.
Aussie Grit Apparel co-CEO Cassandra Carey said the brand was proud to announce their newest Australian partnership.
“As an Australian outdoors brand, we love to see our community exploring the unique natural landscape that this country offers and Wolgan Valley is certainly one of those beautiful Aussie locations. Those who take on the Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge will receive Aussie Grit Apparel in their packs; our technical running apparel has been designed for exactly this type of challenge, the perfect blend of functional design, adaptive materials and moral fibre,” Cassandra said.
A broader range of Aussie Grit Apparel is also available now in the gift shop at Emirates One&Only in Wolgan Valley, including the brand new Wendover Down Jackets.
The Wolgan Valley Adventure Challenge officially kicks off on August 26 2019, you can find out more information about bookings here.
