Description

Join us for the Enormous Elephant Run: Freestyle and show your support for elephants! Previously held in New York, the herd is on the move and will now be debuting on the West Coast March 10, 2018 in sunny Los Angeles. The run location of Griffith Park features an easy to navigate equestrian trail, through lush scenery of large trees and picturesque views that are perfectly suited for a morning 5K walk or run. Whether you choose to wear an elephant suit, a tutu, regular running gear, or whatever your style, we can't wait to dash to the finish line with you in an effort to bring awareness and much needed support to the conservation programs of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Kids and dogs welcome! Participation is limited, so register today and lend your voice (and your feet!) for the future of elephants and wildlife of Africa!
