The Yorkshire Wildlife Park 5k
A FUN AND FRIENDLY 5K
We’re really excited about the opportunity to work with local running specialists Curly’s Athletes and Blizard Physiotherapy to bring you this amazing event. We will also have a separate junior event on the day (details coming soon!)
Working with Curly’s Athletes and Team Blizard our aims are simple, have a great fun filled event, raise sponsorship and awareness for the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation and contribute to the health and well-being of our local community.
So, if you’re feeling inspired to take part then read on and don’t forget you can support the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation by raising sponsorship, buying a t-shirt or simply making a direct donation. Just select on your entry form.
Entry price is just £20 and includes a medal, post-race snack & water plus it allows you to access the great surrounds of the Wildlife Park for the rest of the day! You can even pop home, get a shower and come back later (but make sure you keep your wrist band on!)
With around 3k in the park you’ll get to see plenty of animals on your way round (don’t forget to look!) The route has been planned in conjunction with the needs of the wildlife so some animals we won’t be running past but you can pop and say hello to them after the run.
If you would like to bring along spectators then you can bring up to 3 with you, they will have restricted access to the grounds staying off the running course during the event but can see the runners at several key locations and from around 10:00 will then have full access to the Wildlife Park for the rest of the day. This is offered at a discounted rate as entry to the park is normally £16 for an adult and we’re able to offer this for just £10! (further discounts for juniors, etc. YWP Annual Pass Holders can accompany the runner for free. If Annual Pass Holders wish to run the event, they must register in advance at the standard event price).
