Exploring and protecting wild places.

Event Designer turned trail running bum and environmental advocate, I am on a mission to live a wild, creative and impactful life that champions and protects the natural world.


Exploring the oceans, mountains, rivers, plains and lakes of Victoria and beyond. With each adventure comes understanding, awe and appreciation of the natural world.

For Wild Places

FWP leads the running community into immediate action to protect places of environmental and cultural significance – we do this through our love for sport it’s called Sports Activism!

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which we live, work and explore.  We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging and recognise the ongoing connection of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to their Country, land and sea. Always has, always will be.

Hilary McAllister.

Currently holed up in North Western Victoria.
