Organiser's Description

DB12Run Proudly Presents

Save our Edinburgh Zoo Virtual 5 & 10km Run

This is a virtual 5km or 10km walk jog or run raising in aid for the Edinburgh Zoo

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

The animals at Edinburgh Zoo are loved by so many people. But while we are closed, they are relying on your donations to care for them. Every day, we need to raise thousands of pounds just to buy the food the animals need.

We want to reopen for you soon. But until then, our charity has no income or government support so the future of Edinburgh Zoo is at risk.


Sadly Edinburgh Zoo has been told by the Scottish Government that they won't be able to open before 15th July - and this date is still not guaranteed.

Delaying the reopening of Edinburgh Zoo means we will miss the start of the summer and lose £400,000.

This is critical funding for our charity which helps to care for the animals in your zoos and in the wild. Without it, the very future of Edinburgh Zoo is at risk.

Donations from animal lovers like you have helped to care for all of our incredible animals during this pandemic. We are asking for your help once again to get through five more weeks without any income.

Can you help with doing a virtual 5 & 10k for the edinburgh zoo?

The cost to enter is £11

£7 of each runner will be sent to edinburgh zoo just giving page & runners will recieve a unique tiger medal for doing the virtual 5 or 10km run anytime between now and the 28th June.

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.
