What is The Enormous Elephant Run: Freestyle?

A 5k fun run where you can dress up how you like to raise vital funds for Africa’s iconic but threatened species.

At the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, we work to protect Kenya’s wildlife, including elephants. We can’t bear a future without this iconic species and we’re determined to keep doing all we can to protect wild herds, treat injured elephants and care for calves, orphaned by ivory poaching.

By participating in The Enormous Elephant Run, you're doing something very special: raising funds to keep a species safe for generations to come. At our event, you'll be surrounded by others just as passionate about wildlife as you; you'll join our awesome 'herd' of challenge seekers, elephant lovers and fitness fans for a day to remember.

Here are our rules to run by..

1. Our herd is for everyone! We're family and dog friendly plus our runners are brilliant people who make the atmosphere on the day inspiring. 

2. We're in this for elephants! Fundraising is central to our event: we love elephants and want to keep them protected. We know you love elephants and a challenge too, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this, so make sure you set a fundraising target to aim for and have fun trying to hit it.

3. Tell Your Friends! Remember: elephants are social animals and love having fun with their friends. So tell everyone, pick and awesome team name and bring a group.
