The Durrell Challenge 2017 with Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill nominated for JustGiving Awards 2016

Durrell is delighted to announce the return of The Durrell Challenge in 2017, together with the support of its ambassador, Henry Cavill.

The event will take place on Sunday 14th May and will include the 13K race from St Helier to Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey. In addition to this, 2017 will see the introduction of the Superhero Stroll, an interactive lap of the park for all children under the age of 16years. To keep in theme of our main event, and in honour of Durrell Ambassador Henry Cavill who will be in attendance on the day, we ask that all entrants of the Superhero Stroll embrace their inner Superhero!!!

There will be themed merchandise available on the day for purchase in case you cannot locate your super hero vest in the cupboard! Buggies and an accompanying parent are welcomed for those keener younger entrants under 4 years of age. What better way to include loved ones who want to greet you over the 13K race finish line!

The popular Family Fun Day will return with plenty of entertainment at the Park after the race, including local musicians, arts and crafts, tantalizing food and drinks, talks with the keepers, and the chance to learn more about conservation and the animals at Durrell.

Durrell Wildlife Park will be open to all runners, their families, Durrell members, and visitors. Henry Cavill will once again be spending the day at Durrell so there may be a chance to meet him.

    “But they´ll look down on you. Not all of them, but some. You know how people are about not taking care of an animal; they consider it inmoral and anti-empathic” … actual readng, an oldie but a goldie. Sharing a bit.

    By the way, because it is Henry´s birthday, have an empowering relaxing empathic day! (cough, cough)
