The Durrell Challenge 2023 – Live 13k Race and 2.6k Family Race

💚 The Durrell Challenge is kindly sponsored by Butterfield and organised with 3D Events. 💚
📅 Join us on Sunday 14 May for the #DurrellChallenge2023 and run wild to save species from extinction!
🏃 Whether you take it slow and steady like or tortoise or sprint round like a hare, there’s something for everyone at this year’s Durrell Challenge.
Choose to take part in the 13k live race, starting at Victoria Park and finishing at Jersey Zoo, or the 13k virtual race for those outside of Jersey. We also have a new family-friendly 2.6k course, which will start and finish at Jersey Zoo. Registration is open to all runners aged 16+ for the 13k race, and 8+ for the family race.

🐢 Theme 🐇
This year’s Durrell Challenge theme is “Tortoise and Hare”, so get thinking about your outfits because special prizes will be awarded for the highest fundraiser and best-dressed runners!
🏆 Fundraising
All funds raised will go towards Durrell’s work saving some of the rarest wildlife on the planet. New for this year, to replace t-shirts, we will be planting a tree for every runner at our rewilding site in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. This will be included in each runner’s race fee.
⭐️ Conservation Heroes
Are you running our live Durrell Challenge races in Jersey? If so, you could be invited to an exclusive Night Safari at Jersey Zoo! To thank all runners who fundraise £300+, we’re offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our nocturnal species.
You and one guest will join us at the zoo to learn from our keepers about the animals who come out at night and enjoy the wonders of our grounds at dusk. The highest overall fundraiser will get the additional prize of a behind the scenes tour with our nocturnal species.
If you do not plan to set up your own fundraising page, please consider donating at registration. Thank you!
