We are a wildlife conservation charity passionate about wild animal welfare. The 2023 RUN WILD team are taking on this endurance challenge to raise funds for a compassionate future where animals and people can co-exist and where threatened and endangered species are protected for generations to come.

Well done team Run Wild 2022. Super proud to have shared the streets of London with you today. We made noise for Born Free and all that they stand for. Well done Born Free, its an emotional feeling standing tall with you for the animals. Ritchi Edwards, 3rd time Marathon runner for Born Free.
