Run wild and join Wild Place Project’s charity fun run
Wild Place Project is inviting runners, joggers and walkers to ‘run wild’ next month as it holds its third annual fundraising fun run.
Runners can chase past the cheetahs, leap past the lemurs and whistle past the wolves in the multi-terrain fun run, which is open to everyone from seasoned runners to complete beginners.
Participants can choose either a 5k or 10k route around the attraction on Sunday September 10th, through woodland, across open fields and along footpaths with plenty of animals to see and cheer points along the way.
The event, which is sponsored by Everyone Active, will raise vital funds for an exciting new woodland exhibit at Wild Place Project, celebrating the nature, animals and heritage of British ancient woodland.
For taking part in Wild Run, participants will receive a medal and finishers’ pack, as well as the chance to spend the rest of the day at Wild Place Project for free, for themselves and a guest. Additional guests can enjoy 50 per cent off the entry ticket price.
There will also be a ‘Runners’ Village’, which will be open all day for family fun, food and to cheer runners through the finish, as well as face painting, a BBQ, and a bouncy castle.
Entry to the 5k Wild Run is £18 for adults and £16 for children (aged 8–16), with discounts for members. Entry to the 10k Wild Run is £20 for adults with discounts for group bookings and members. Race entry includes free admission to Wild Place on race day for the participant and one guest, and half price for subsequent guests.
Visitors to Wild Place Project can see animals from Madagascar, Africa and the Congo and find out how they are helping to conserve them in the wild. Guests can also take a stroll in the woods, relax in the Tower Meadow or have fun in the undercover Fun Fort.
