Curly's and the Yorkshire Wildlife Park team are back again with the national award winning walk, jog, run safari!
After the postponement of the spring event due to Corona Virus guidance we can't wait to be back and have the best ever big day running amongst the animals!
Run alongside some amazing animals including Lions, Giraffes, Rhinos, Baboons and many many more (plus your friends!)
Bring your spectating fans, junior runners (for the Lion run!) and all of your running friends.
Once you've done your run, then enjoy the whole day out at the park all included in your entry ticket :) (ps: the ability to add these extra people will come nearer the event day)
Go for a PB on this fully UK athletics licensed course or do with friends in fancy dress.
You can also fundraise and help further support the great work the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation does.
Have a read of the provisional information pack here to help answer any questions you may have. (will be added nearer the time!)
Run your 5k anytime, anywhere and send us your results. You'll be supporting The Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation and receive the awesome medal!
Above is last year example of the amazing Giant Otters and Smooth Coated Otter!
The Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation is an active supporter of a key project in remote areas of South America to preserve the Giant Otter threatened by deforestation, commercial fisheries, and increased industrialisation across the Amazon Basin. YWPF funds a scheme to improve management and conservation of the Cantão ecosystem, carrying out local field surveys in the 90,000 hectare Cantão State Park, in Brazil, which is home to 700 species of birds and 300 species of fish. The project will improve awareness of the Giant Otters and the need for conservation, and will create local jobs as 30 oxbow lakes and river channels will be constantly monitored and other areas surveyed.
Working in association with Yorkshire Wildlife Park, YWPF are working to raise awareness for the endangered giant otter at the the park. The otter reserve at Yorkshire Wildlife Park will help visitors understand the species and their fight for survival.
We're busy putting on new 2021 ribbons to all 1350 of our postponed event medals ready for this Spring :)
If you did join us for the virtual event in 2020 and already have one of these awesome otter medals... don't worry, we've added a question when you sign up. We have arranged an alternative Otter medal, the we have had made especially celebrating the parks smaller Otter residents :)
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is home to the charity The Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation. The Foundation was created in 2013 to inspire people to support conservation and welfare. YWPF’s charitable objectives are to promote and advance the conservation and welfare of endangered wildlife both in their natural habitat and in captivity and to educate and inspire the public
The Run for Wildlife events help to raise awareness and support fundraising for the Foundation.
Your entry fee supports the foundation, as does adding a t-shirt or making a direct donation when you enter.
You can also fundraise as part of running the event and ask friends, family or work colleagues to donate. Run in fancy dress or maybe it's your first ever run. Whatever your reason for running it, you can rest assured that you will be helping the Foundation to support more animals.
