We hope runners will join the fun and raise funds to support Durrell's work saving some of the rarest wildlife on the planet. 

Special prizes will be awarded for the highest fundraiser and best-dressed Dashers, so why not wear your favourite Christmas jumper or reindeer antlers! 

All runners will receive an exclusive finisher medal, refreshments at the finish line, and free entry to the zoo.
