You Can Now Complete an Epic 21km Challenge at Ultra-Exclusive Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley

Push yourself to the max with the brand-new Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge, a 21km trail run taking place in the vast grounds of the super-luxurious Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley.

Exclusively nestled in a private valley in the Greater Blue Mountains area – a majestic three-hour drive from Sydney – the surrounding scenery creates the perfect natural playground for adventurers.

Available to only 10 guests every month, the course was mapped out by an expert team of Field Guides who scoured the reserve to help guests experience Wolgan Valley like never before.

Trail runners can explore the wild, inspiring and rarely accessed parts of the resort’s extraordinary wilderness setting and at the same time build fitness and endurance.

A leader in eco-conscious travel and nine years proudly carbon neutral, it’s of little surprise that the surrounding World Heritage-listed national parks were at the forefront while creating the track – which is why the monthly course is limited to just 10 people.

The Course – 21km of natural beauty

Officially launching on 27 September 2019, the guided Wolgan Warrior 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).

Wolgan Warriors will navigate sheer sandstone escarpments, soaring mountain peaks, pristine creeks, dense bushland and sweeping plains, led by a dedicated Field Guide who is steeped in knowledge of the local terrain.

The trail begins at Razorback Ridge, which separates the southern valley from the vast meadows of the western valley, with its arid environment and fascinating diversity of reptiles, birds and specialist plants.

After tackling this peak, the warriors dart across to Mount Wolgan, and explore its thick eucalyptus canopy as the terrain steepens.

The runners will then zig-zag through beautifully coloured sandstone boulders as they commence the ascent of Donkey Mountain, the famous rock which looms over the resort. Separated into two sections, the saddle and the ascent, this is where the runners earn their stripes as a true Wolgan Warrior.

The Relaxation – Post-Warrior treats await

Of course, participants will also enjoy a taste of the good life at the ultra-exclusive resort. Wolgan Warrior weekends will be tailored to include special menus, stretching sessions and therapeutic massages to round out the unparalleled adventure experience.

On arrival to Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley for the warrior weekend, participants will be treated to a Sundowners and Wildlife Tour, which will include a course briefing, recce and drinks at Naglow Knoll.

Guests will also receive their entrant packs with Wolgan Warrior running gear by Aussie Grit Apparel and sports nutrition and hydration supplements provided by Koda Nutrition.

The Wolgan Warrior Adventure Challenge will kick off at 9am on Saturday morning, allowing five hours for participants to tackle the 21km track.

In the afternoon, guests will have the option to enjoy therapeutic spa treatments, take advantage of the plunge pool, sauna and steam facilities, followed by a campfire at 1832 Heritage Homestead to celebrate their achievements with drinks, canapés and an awards ceremony.

On Sunday morning, guests cap off their eco-weekend with a conservation tree planting within the Wolgan Warrior Zone to commemorate the run.
