Route information
Weave your way through Howletts Animal Wild Park in this unique 5k race supporting The Aspinall Foundation’s honey badger rewilding project and celebrate almost 40 years of ground-breaking wildlife conservation work by taking part in a unique 5k run at Howletts Wild Animal Park, near Canterbury.
You will pass over 45 different species, including Kent's only giant anteaters, gorillas, leopards, monkeys and much more. This course guarantees a few hills to get your legs burning so make sure to soak up the amazing views as you run, and expect the terrain to be mixed throughout.
Tembe, Howletts' head honey-muncher, was born at Howletts Wild Animal Park on March 25th 2016 to BeeBee and Tyson. Her parents are both owned by other European collections and have since been transported together to another institution as part of the captive breeding plan, leaving cheeky Tembe as the only honey badger in the UK.
Despite being a firm favourite of visitors and our partners at Howletts, we at The Aspinall Foundation believe that Tembe deserves a chance at a life in the wild. In February 2023, Tembe will leave Howletts for a new life in South Africa at the beautiful Care For Wild: the largest orphan rhino sanctuary in the world.
Will you support Tembe's move to her ancestral home, where she will feel the African sun on her back and live out her days as a free honey badger?
