For Wild Places (FWP) has released its new membership package – and it comes with a chance to win some awesome trail running gear!


New members who sign up before the 15th of November will go in the draw to win gear packs stocked with goodies from Tarkine, Fractel, and ioMerino.

It’s the icing on the cake of an already value-packed membership – that includes discounts for top outdoor brands, premium access to events and all the latest news from the trail running community.

But purchasing a For Wild Places membership is not only about what you get out of it – it’s also a great way to support this passionate group of runners.

‘FWP wants to build a community of runners that actively fight for our wild places. Members are at the core of this community, helping to reach out to more and more people,’ says Chris Williams, FWP Membership Coordinator.

What are the prize packs?

There are seven prize packs to give away which include:

  • a pair of Tarkine Trail Devils and an IoMerino buff


  • a pair of Tarkine Goshawks, a Fractel hat and an IoMerino buff

There’ll also be a flash offer in October, where the next person to join wins a box of CLIF bars.

For current members who’ve already jumped aboard the FWP wagon, the first ten members to refer a new member will win either a pair of Tarkine Goshawks or a Fractel Hat.

Why support For Wild Places?

FWP has brought activism to the trails – with a passionate community of runners who care about protecting, preserving, and celebrating the wild places they run in. FWP was the inaugural winner of the North Face Explore Fund and has launched many great initiatives to protect Australia’s wilderness.

‘Since launching FWP membership just over a year ago, it has contributed just over $14,000 to For Wild Places. With this support, we can continue building our community and increasing our positive impact,’ says Hilary McAllister, FWP CEO.

‘Members appreciate and understand the work we do, and without their generosity and support, we wouldn’t be where we are today, nor dreaming of big things for the future’.


What’s included in a For Wild Places membership?

As well as a chance to win great prizes, FWP members get discounts to top outdoor brands including Adventure+, Tarkine, Trail Brew, ioMerino, Paddy Pallin, Fractel, and Coast To Mountain Running.

Members also get first access to FWP events, a welcome pack that includes an upcycled trail running trash bag, and are the first to hear the latest news from the trail running community.

Where do I sign up?

Visit the For Wild Places website to get your membership and join this passionate community of trail runners – and do it before the 15th of November if you want to be in the running for the prize packs!
