Run Wild is very excited to be launching Issue Two with your help. We're happy to have the first issue stocked in some of our favourite magazine stores in 7 countries across Europe and as far away as Singapore.
After the manic effort to get the first issue together, we took a breath, coming back in Issue Two with more pages, a change to 100% post-consumer recycled paper and the addition of some amazing illustrators. We’re a small magazine with a big soul – free of advertising and supportive of young writers and illustrators. We would love your help and support to bring out the new issue.
What's in Issue Two?
This issue is about our freedom to live, play and explore in ways that bring sublime happiness, looking at the journey that takes us there. Cycling the Marin Headlands to see another side of San Francisco; camping in ancient caves in Italy to connect with the past; facing fears in the French mountains to push boundaries; the close climbing community that's developed in England's Peak District – this issue gives glimpses of life and adventures in America, Finland, Italy, France, England, Japan, New Zealand, Cuba and Iran. Yes, that’s 9 amazing countries plus interviews with an American forest fire-fighter and Gracie Martin on her climbing experiences.
144 pages on beautiful uncoated 120gm paper.
Why do we need your help?
We're an independent magazine based in Sheffield and relied on our personal funds for the printing costs of the first issue. Most stores take magazines on consignment and send payment after they've sold and the next issue arrives - we have most of the funds for the printing costs for next issue and need the help of our friends and supporters in raising the final amount.
This crowdfunding campaign will reward the people that support us. Rewards include copies of Issue Two, handmade badges from illustrator Will Powers, very limited edition giclée photo prints on fine art paper and suscriptions to our magazine. Everyone will receive our personal thanks and a mention on our website.

The design for the new issue has been completed and most of the funding for the printing costs is already in place. We are already stocked in some of the best magazine stores around Europe so Issue Two will happen. All the rewards are ready and waiting to be sent out to our supporters.
