Story

We are a group of business leaders in the North West who want to do our part in preventing extinction.

We are running the Borneo Ultra-Trail Marathon in March 2021 and raising funds for Chester Zoo's vital conservation work in Borneo. This is a gruelling race through rainforest, over mountains, across rivers, and under a blanket of 30 degree heat and humidity.

Why take on such an epic challenge? Because we will not stand by and watch some of the richest rainforest in the world disappear forever. We aim to raise £50,000 to support Chester Zoo's work protecting rainforest in Borneo. Their activities range from tree-planting, wildlife monitoring and research, to managing forest fires, and each facet of this work contributes to a healthy, thriving rainforest habitat where wildlife can flourish.

So we're taking on the BUTM. Time is running out for this irreplaceable resource. We need to act fast if we are to ensure that the incredible wildlife that call Borneo home aren't going to disappear forever.

Every donation makes a huge difference to what we can achieve, and we really appreciate your interest and support. Thank you so much for joining us as we work to prevent extinction.

This is a donation from Nell and Erin's pocket money to get us started (saved over a long time). This cause means a lot to them and as parents we're proud that they want to support.
