GET SPONSORED TO HELP SAVE ASIAN ELEPHANTS
This year, the money you raise through taking on our Run for Nature challenge will help save Asian elephants from extinction. We are raising money to develop a vaccine for EEHV, a deadly disease which affects elephants both in zoos and in the wild. We’re the first zoo in the world to develop a vaccine for this disease and every penny you raise will make a huge difference in helping us continue this vital work.
Go the extra mile with your fundraising to earn amazing bonuses…
There’s a FREE t-shirt for anyone who raises over £60 for Chester Zoo. PLUS, we’ve got some great prizes for our top fundraisers such as a family membership, animal adoption, a meal at The Oakfield or even an Animal Experience!
GATHER YOUR SPECTATOR SQUAD
Just like an elephant we know you gain strength from your herd. Your supporters will get discounted zoo entry, and soon we’ll be releasing a detailed spectator guide so they can watch you Run For Nature.
RUN OUR ROUTE WITH A DIFFERENCE
The Chester Zoo 10k and Kids Mile both have flat and fast routes through our zoo estate. Starting in the zoo itself, you’ll then pass fascinating sights like our Conservation Breeding Management Area and where our giraffes’ food is grown.
WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
We’ll be there to support you on your journey to make sure you reach the start line ready to run wild! Keep an eye out for training plans and fundraising tips from our team of experts.
