Lakenheath Fen's Race for Wildlife 2023

Grab your running shoes and join us on Sunday 15 October to race for your local wildlife- and choose from a 5k or 10k route. Both circuits take in a variety of terrain as you pass through our full range of habitats, with a good chance of spotting some rare and unique fenland wildlife too! Keep an eye open for kingfishers, bitterns, cranes and otters while you pound the ground for nature.

On the day of the event, competitors will find a network of helpful volunteers, marshals and two water stations. We'll be here to cheer you on and support you every step of the way, and you'll find a lovely supportive atmosphere awaiting you on the day. At the finish line, everyone receives a medal (with handmade medals for the fastest three male and female finishers) and to polish off a lovely day we have a homemade cake sale at the end!

All ages and abilities will be welcomed and supported- we have young people's tickets offered at half price. You can expect free parking, secure baggage storage, toilets and changing facilities and we'll time you too!

Every year this event is popular so please book your ticket as soon as possible to avoid dissapointment. If you'd like to raise even more money for wildlife, we offer sponsorship forms- please give us a call on 01842 863400 or e-mail us at to pick one up.
