Update your FB Wall cover to share with friends.

Various sponsors and stalls will be displaying outdoor gears at the venue:

For over a decade now we have channelized our passion for the outdoors into creating reliable gear that truly stands for the outdoors. Wildcraft today stands for trust, that all our customers, whether it is the outdoor enthusiasts or the urban travellers, place in us and our products. We stand for a passion that has intrinsically worked towards creating products that can endure the resilience of the great outdoors.

Looking for a good brand MTB, road bike or Hybrid? The best store in town is Pro-Bikers at OMR near SRP tools which has a wide display of various models of good quality imported cycle brands which are built to last for many years. Pro-Bikers also provides good post-sales servicing and has been supporting CTC in a number of Triathlon and MTB events.

We at Wolfpack believe that life is meant to be lived outdoors, wild and free. Suited and booted, chained to routine, sedated by the mundane is not how its supposed to be. We believe that the beauty of the earth cannot be constrained by four walls. And as hard as it may seem to be, somewhere inside each of us there is a primal instinct drumming away. The one that urges you to feel the wind in your hair, the sand at your feet and to shout out loud while thumping your chest. Welcome to WOLFPACK. A celebration of your wild side, outdoor bonafide, your inner child. Products to hold on to that impulse even in today's mundane world. Products that inspire the outdoor attitude. So for a moment, throw off the shackles, howl at the moon. Get real. Join the Wolfpack. It's an attitude.
