Our annual 'Sprint For Seals' family fun run is back at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary for 2024!

Get involved and run for more than fun as we seek to raise funds for our ‘Fund Our Future’ campaign to build new pools for our resident seals.

Join us for a hilly 3km run around our beautiful sanctuary and don’t forget to wave at the seals as you run past! The scenic route begins near the admissions building and runners will complete two laps of the Sanctuary before finishing at the start line. We also have an exciting new option for 2024, allowing you to join in remotely through Strava if you're aren't local to us.

We’ll be giving away some incredible prizes, including opportunities to get involved with unique experiences here at the Sanctuary. For every £50 you raise in sponsorship you will be given one entry into our raffle, so the more you raise the more chance you have of winning!

So get pounding those pavements and help us bring the pounds in!

WHEN: Sunday 19th May 2024

LOCATION: The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Gweek or join remotely!

Entry to the fun run is £15, which includes free day entry into the sanctuary, and an exclusive goodie bag including a race t-shirt and medal!

Remote runners will be able to join the Strava event to log their run.

We’d encourage you to set up your own fundraiser on our ‘Sprint For Seals 2024’ JustGiving page to collect your sponsorship money, we can support you in setting this up if required.
