Really Wild Day

Really Wild Day 27th September 2020

The Really Wild Day is kindly sponsored by Butterfield.

After the 13K race, the zoo will be open to everyone for a ‘Really Wild Day’ out. Head back to nature, kick off your shoes and feel the grass between your toes. Enjoy food and drink within the beautiful grounds of the zoo. Let your little monkeys roam free and enjoy a variety of wild activities, including Wild Quest which is an exciting new adventure for children aged 10 and under, kindly sponsored by Appleby. Embrace your inner explorer! Fancy dress is most definitely encouraged.

Gates open at 09:00 to allow friends and family to watch runners cross the finish line. The Really Wild Day will then commence at 10:00 and finish at 18:00. An allocated area will be available on the day for sponsors, prize winners, and high achieving fundraisers.
