Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo is holding its second annual 10K event on Saturday March 5.

The event, held in partnership with CIRCLE, a University of York founded conservation project, will give 600 people the chance of running past Flamingo Land’s most iconic attractions.

The run aims to raise £6,000 profit for African forest conservation in the Magombera forest, Tanzania.

So far, the donations raised have helped thousands of African villagers, promoting education and development. This has been achieved whilst protecting forest sustainability and the vulnerable species which live there, including the threatened Red Colobus Monkey and the Magombera Chameleon.

Entry fees are £13 for Run Britain affiliated runners and £15 for non-affiliated runners. Sponsorship is also encouraged to help maximise the funding available for forest conservation in Tanzania.
