FAQs

Baggage
The car park is located next to the start and finish line and we therefore recommend leaving any belongings in your car. There will be an informal baggage drop located within the Event Village. If you wish to use the baggage drop, please collect a baggage label from the information desk and attach it to your bag before handing it in.

You will need to show your race number again when collecting your bag to ensure each bag is reunited with its rightful owner.

Toilets
There will be portaloos within the event village.

Refreshments
There will be water provided at the 5k point of the race, and there will also be water available at the finish.

    Can I run with a running buggy?

    Hey there, just to let you are welcome to run with a buggy but they ask that you stick to the back at the start of the race in order to avoid congestion as the first KM within the zoo is quite tight and windy. Best of luck!

  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Really enjoyed this 10k run. Starts in the zoo, so you get to run past some of the animals, then you do a big loop round the back of the zoo through lovely countryside. There’s a few inclines, and some nice downhills, then back into the zoo to finish off. Once you’ve finished you can show your number and get free entry into the zoo. Also 20% off the food outlets! Pretty good value all round. Lovely medal and t shirt as well. Good atmosphere. Chip timed. Nicely spaced out start as everyone has to queue through the zoo to start. Free massage before as well! Great 10k. Would definitely do again.

    The whole event was really well organised great event. The Atmosphere was brilliant and great to have all the stalls at the end with treats to pick.

    I took my mum to this for her first 10k. Fantastic organisation, great medal & goody bag & amazing atmosphere. The trip round the zoo afterwards was a bonus. Great event.
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Loved this run so well organised, great friendly people and Marshalls everywhere Brilliant medal goodie bag and T Shirt. Was fantastic to walk pass all the elephants and tigers etc at the start. The route was beautiful countryside although there is a hill at mile 5.5 but this make it more interesting (LOL) I will defiantly run this again next year. .
