Durrell Challenge

Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust launches ‘The Durrell Challenge 2019′, a 13k road race held in Jersey, Channel Islands taking place on Sunday 12th May 2019. The Durrell Challenge is delighted to welcome Butterfield Bank for 2019 + 2020 as headline sponsor for the 13k Road Race and Really Wild Day!

As in previous years, the 13k road race is just one element of a day of festivities welcoming everyone to Jersey Zoo for a Really Wild Day to raise valuable funds for this worthy cause.

13k Road Race

The day starts with a timed 13K road race, commencing at 9am. Runners will meet in Victoria Park, St. Helier and finish at Jersey Zoo. Organisers are encouraging people of all abilities to take part to raise valuable funds for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. All those entered for the 13K race will automatically receive free entry into the Really Wild Day, as the race finishes in Jersey Zoo. For those of you who register for the VIP entry you must raise at least £1,200 and use a Just Giving fundraising page to do this.

Really Wild Day

After the race, Jersey Zoo will be open to all (including 13k runners and all mini supersleuth’s) for a wild day out. Head back to nature, and engage your wild side. Kick off your shoes, feel the grass between your toes and dance. Enjoy food and drink in the beautiful natural settings of Jersey Zoo. Let your children roam free and enjoy bare foot walking trails, a magical story telling area and activities that engage them with nature. Engage with conservation and observe the incredible animals that live within Jersey Zoo.

Please note to book tickets for your family and friends to gain access into the zoo, they will need to purchase tickets for the Really Wild Day which will be available to purchase soon. Entry is free for members.
