After the race Durrell Wildlife Park will be open to all (including the 13k runners, their families and those who are Durrell Members) for a unique opportunity to experience pop- up stalls showcasing the best Jersey has to offer. In the beautiful setting of the park there will be plenty of entertainment, including being able to meet with the keepers, learn more about conservation and see the animals. A VIP tent will also be open on the day for sponsors, prize winners and high achieving fundraisers, alongside plenty of food & drink stalls offering delicious produce.
