Our brand new event! Enjoy a Spring 5K at Howletts Wild Animal Park. Enjoy a gentle 5K route through the park and see how many animals you can spot including our brand new elephant baby!
Why take part in the Howletts Spring 5K?
In 2019 The Aspinall Foundation rescued 11 Elephants, 4 Giraffe, 24 Wildebeest and 18 Buffalo from a reserve struggling desperately with severe drought and very little food. The animals were relocated to new reserves where they are now well fed, watered and protected. This year we are raising funds for their South Africa Emergency Fund to ensure the future of many other Elephants and African wildlife that are in desperate need of rescue. By taking part and fundraising for the Howletts Spring 5K you will be directly assisting in this vital conservation work and saving wildlife from extinction.
Bring your family and friends to support you. The 5K run both starts and finishes at our event village on the grass outside of the main park. This is a great spot for spectators to join us for free where they can enjoy stalls, food, drink, entertainment and more!
Race entry does not include park entry after the race has finished. Spectators will have to pay park entry prices if they wish to enter the park.
