Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo at Kirby Misperton held its second annual 10K event on Saturday.

The event, held in partnership with CIRCLE, a University of York founded conservation project, gave 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.
