-Funds raised from the event will go directly towards caring for all the animals in the park and helping us come back after COVID19. 

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 or on the track, where ever you can do it. Run at your own pace and most of all enjoy yourself! Please adhere to social distancing and governement guidelines at all times.

It’s impossible to overstate the impact of the Covid-19 closure on Highland Wildlife Park. It cut off 90% of the funds needed by our dedicated keepers and vets to care for thousands of animals.

Now we are open, but with greatly reduced visitors, your park is still at risk.

Despite this, we can't and won't compromise on the care of our animals. Your gift will help to feed and care for your favourite animals here at the park. If they could thank you – they would!

Get your running friends and family involved and let's complete this run as a community, see you there?
