Organiser's Description

DB12Run Proudly Presents

Save our Edinburgh Zoo #2

Virtual 5k 10km & Half marathon

Walk jog Run or even Cycle

This is a virtual 5km 10km or half marathon walk jog run 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. On behalf of DB12Run We were extremely grateful to each and every one of you who signed up to the previous event where £6748 was raised in aid for RZSS Edinburgh Zoo

While Edinburgh zoo can now welcome you back, the visitor numbers are greatly reduced and the future of your zoo is at risk.

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 £12.00

£4.75 of each runner will be sent to edinburgh zoo just giving page

Due to covid-19 and facecoverings we have now done a change and instead of a medal being sent to all those who entered we will be instead sending every person who enters the event a custom unique one of a kind animal snood. This is a multi-functional and antibacterial snood thats easily washable / constantly reusable as a face mask for coronavirus. This tube-shape snood can easily be pulled up over the mouth and nose in shops or out and about.


So how does it work?

1. Sign up

2. Complete Your virtual Race

3. Submit your results

A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill at the gym or on the track where ever you can do it. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. 

what's next?

Show off your snoode!!!

To submit your evidence send by either email or through our DB12Run facebook page
