2014 is looking great for the ZOO RUN with Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary holding their first ZOO RUN to help raise money and awareness for their own Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.  This hospital is such a busy hospital run by wonderful staff that deserve our support

2015 is looking even better as we take on more great locations and raise money for more great wildlife charities! Stay Tuned!

      Hello Kees

      Wow how exciting! Thank you so much for asking about joining us for the ZOO RUN at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. This is located on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia. A huge tourist area. I have sent you more information in an email to your Gmail account! I really hope that our ZOO RUN fits in with your travel plans. If you are coming please make sure you find me on the day so I can say “Goedemorgen”. You also wont be alone, my wonderful friend from Walt will be there on the day. He is also Dutch. Mum is excited as she always gets kissed 3 times on the cheeks by Walt – as he tells us this is a Dutch custom. LOL You will have to let me know if this is correct. :)

    Hi, I have never done a fun run before but I am thinking of entering in the 5k.
    Can you please send me more information about everything to do with it :)

      Hello Susannah
      The ZOO RUN is a perfect run to start enjoying the great out doors, see amazing wildlife, met like minded people and by paying the entry fee helping out the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital!

      I hope you will join us. If you feel you cant do the 5km run you can always try the 2km run/walk. This will be at a slower pace and not as many hills etc

      The 5km run will be in waves…Waddle like a wombat is for runners that know they will not finish the 5km within 20 mins.

      Hope this helps and see you on the day

      Hello Janelle

      Thanks for getting in touch with me.

      The ZOO RUN is a happening at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on Sunday the 23rd of November 2014

      We will be there from 6am and the first run (5km in waves from fastest to slowest) will start at 6.30 sharp. Then the 2km run/walk will commence about after all the 5km runners have left.

      The cost for the ZOO RUN is

      • $50 for the 5km
      • $40 for the 2km run/walk

      As the 5km run is in bushland and some minor obstacles (such as bridges etc) are involved sadly only runners can do this event. No wheel chair access or prams.

      The 2km run has wheelchair and pram access and is open to anyone.

      This event is put on by Tegan (Me!) Lather with the help of her parents and after we have paid all the bills for the event, t-shirts, insurance etc we will give the rest of the funds raised to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

      In my last ZOO RUN at Australia Zoo we had 500 runners, just like Currumbin ZOO RUN, and raised $20,000!!! for the wildlife hospital, so I am hoping to sell all the spots.

      For the cost of your entry you will receive

      • Free T-Shirt
      • Free Reusable Water bottle
      • Free Entry into Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the day of the ZOO RUN
      • Any friends and family that wish to join you at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the day of the ZOO RUN at Mates Rates – only $20 each! That is a huge saving
      • Other freebies on the day and in the running to win Awesome Prizes!

      To register for the event please go to http://www.zoorun.com.au/currumbin/register-now/

      I hope we will see you there on the day!

      Tegan ?
