DB12Run Proudly Presents

Save our Edinburgh Zoo #2

Virtual 5k 10km & Half marathon

Walk jog Run swim or even Cycle

This is a virtual 5km 10km or half marathon walk jog run swim or even cycle raising in aid for the RZSS Edinburgh Zoo

You pick what you want to do! Walk jog run a 5km or 10km or even a half!!!!!

The survival of endangered animals depends on the survival of your zoo.

Donations from thousands of people like you and the amazing support of the DB12Run runners who took part in our first event to help raise in aid for the RZSS Edinburgh zoo have kept the RZSS animals well fed and safe while we were closed and had no visitor income. And now thanks to the new lockdown Edinburgh zoo needs it more than ever! and even worse our pandas may be going back!

While Edinburgh zoo can now welcome you back, the visitor numbers are greatly reduced and the future of your zoo is at risk and the pandas may end up leaving us!

Every month, we need thousands of pounds just to feed and care for the animals you love.

If you can, please help your zoo survive long into the future by signing up or donating to the zoo direct

The cost to enter is £11.50

£7 of each runner will be sent to edinburgh zoo just giving page

Each person who enters the event will be given an amazing 1 of a kind running medal sent directly in the post to your door!
