The Port Lympne 5k Challenge returns for 2018 which will see runners taking to the grassland and walkways of Port Lympne Reserve. The run takes place before the park opens to the public and you will experience the sights and sounds of the park waking up for the day.
The route takes you around the grassland near the car park before you enter the main park itself which will then see you run down between our rhino paddocks then down past our bachelor groups of gorillas after this you will then head along past our family of tapirs. Then the ascent back to the top of the park begins, you head up the primate trail passing our vast collections of primates before passing the magnificent Palace of the Apes! The route continues down past our binturong enclosure and up past our large family of baboons. The last big incline will see you head up the hill and back out to the car park where you will cross the finish line and receive your medal!
Raise just £30 in sponsorship and you will receive one free ticket to enjoy the rest of the day at the fantastic Port Lympne Reserve!
So… why not sign up now and take this rare opportunity to experience Port Lympne Reserve before its open to the public whilst raising funds to support the work of The Aspinall Foundation!
