Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust launches ‘The Durrell Challenge 2019’ sponsored by Butterfield Bank, a 13k road race held in Jersey, Channel Islands. 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, runners will start in 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. The event will once again be supported by our race ambassador Henry Cavill*. 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. VIP fundraisers will get the opportunity to meet Henry and have a scheduled photograph on the day. Also enjoy a welcome drink and a light buffet.
While Henry Cavill has pledged his support for The Durrell Challenge and will do his best to attend on the day, the organisers of the event cannot guarantee that he will be present.*
