RSPB Lakenheath Fen Race for Wildlife

If you fancy a "Wild Challenge" with a difference, why not come and take part in our annual Race for Wildlife this year? This is your one chance of the year to run a 5k or a 10k around the reserve. Two multi-terrain courses will be marked around the reserve and marshals will be placed at strategic points around both routes. The 10k route will include parts of the reserve that aren't usually open to the public, so this is your chance to see different parts of the reserve. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Homemade cake and hot drinks will be available to purchase on the day.

The entrance fee for the event is listed below. However, the more money that we raise on the day, the more money goes towards the management of the reserve. This will help to ensure that the RSPB can continue to Give Nature a Home for rare species such as bitterns, cranes and otters in the future. Therefore, if you are able to give more money as a result of taking part, please consider sponsoring yourself and/ or setting up a Just Giving page using the details listed below:.

Please register in advance- £12 per adult, £6 for under 16's via: www.eventbrite.co.uk or send a cheque payable to RSPB. You can also pop into the visitor centre prior to the event and pay in advance. If you would like to raise more money for the RSPB by sponsoring yourself to take part, please e-mail lakenheath@rspb.org.uk; before the run and we will send you a sponsorship form. Alternatively, you can set up a Just Giving page via: www.justgiving.com

If the race limit of 150 participants across the two distances is not reached in advance, places may be available on the day. Each participant will receive a medal and a goody bag. Price includes entrance fee.
