Really Wild Day

Really Wild Day is kindly sponsored by Butterfield Bank.

After the 13km race, the zoo will be open to everyone for a ‘Really Wild Day’ out. Head back to nature, kick off your shoes and feel the grass between your toes. Enjoy food and drink within the beautiful grounds of the zoo. Let your little monkeys roam free and enjoy a variety of wild activities, including the brand new ‘Mission Possible’ for children aged 10 and under. Mini super agents will be given an important mission to complete for Durrell — they will need to solve clues to save some of the most threatened species at Jersey Zoo.

The 2019 Really Wild Day map is detailed below.

Gates open from 09:00 in order to enable friends and family to watch finishers across the line. The Really Wild Day will then commence at 10:00 through to 18:00. An allocated area will be available on the day for sponsors, prize winners and high achieving fundraisers.
