Join us for our special Save The Rhino Run with Chris "Rhino Boy" Green as well as our very own Chuckle Twin aka George "Floats Like A Rhino" McDonough. The aim of this run is to raise money and awareness for Save The Rhino. The medal is awesome and definitely one to collect.
Charity: Chris has run many marathons dressed in his Rhino outfit, raising awareness and money for Save The Rhino. We are delighted to be able to hold an event to assist his tireless efforts.
