Sat 16 Sep Howletts 5k and 10k Fun Run


The popular Howletts 5k Fun Run, enjoyed by runners of all ages, is back for its fourth year! This year we're introducing a new 10k distance.

This rare opportunity will see runners take to the pathways of Howletts running past primates, tigers, our large family of elephants and many more endangered species - all before the park opens to the public. The 5k route is two laps and the 10k four laps of Howletts, giving you chance to spot these amazing animals.
