Howletts Wild Animal Park
There will be lots of activities at the Race HQ, including a kids fun run, stalls and a mini-event village. A good range of refreshments will also be available for you to enjoy.
We actively encourage you to fundraise for the event, and as a thanks from the Aspinal Foundation if you raise over £25 you can also enter the park after the event for FREE!! !! For an easy way to donate or to get sponsored you can use The Aspinall Foundation Just Giving page here - https://www.justgiving.com/jaf
In 2019 The Aspinall Foundation rescued 11 Elephants, 4 Giraffe, 24 Wildebeest and 18 Buffalo from a reserve struggling desperately with severe drought and very little food. The animals were relocated to new reserves where they are now well fed, watered and protected. This year The Aspinall Foundation are raising funds for their South Africa Emergency Fund to ensure the future of many other Elephants and African wildlife that are in desperate need of rescue. By taking part and fundraising for the Howletts Spring 5K you will be directly assisting in this vital conservation work and saving wildlife from extinction.
Within the Race HQ you will also have the opportunity to buy some special merchandise to celebrate your visit.
EVERY finisher will get a unique medal.
Howletts Wild Animal Park is easy to get to being just 5 minutes from the A2, near Canterbury in Kent. A friendly, fun event with our usual great atmosphere.
We are managing this event on behalf of the Aspinall Foundation.
