Race for Sloth Conservation!

Join us for an epic virtual race to raise money for sloth conservation! We are proud to be working in conjunction with England Athletics and Run Britain.

Sloths are facing a devastating reality. Threats from from deforestation, the illegal pet and selfie trade, habitat loss and more are pushing them ever close to extinction. But you can help change their future and save sloths in the wild!

You have 7 days to complete a distance of 2.5k, 5k or 10k! You can run, walk, cycle, toddle, wheel, roll or scoot to complete your chosen distance. The race is open to all ages and all abilities – there are no limitations!

Drusillas Race for Conservation will take place between 5th – 11th October 2020. There is no specification for how the race should be completed, the distance can be done all in one day or spread out over the course of the week.

We only have 250 places so if you want to take part you need to get in touch quick! Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Full details will be sent to successful applicants, but here’s a run down of how it works:
