Join the Rhino Runners!
The London Marathon is the world’s largest marathon run. On its famous 26.2 mile route, you’ll see the sights, soak up the atmosphere, and save rhinos.
It is our favourite day of the year at Save the Rhino. Not only do we get to see incredible supporters taking on an awesome challenge, but we get to meet you in person and thank you for making a difference for rhinos, not to mention see a few of our famous rhino costumes cross over London’s famous Tower Bridge!
Registration for the London Marathon 2022 is now open. So don’t miss out, sign up to run for rhinos today!
On average our runners tend to raise around £2000 – £2500, this helps us to cover our costs of the place while maximising the funds for rhino conservation across our African and Asian field projects. Sometimes this seems like a daunting figure to raise, however there are endless ways of fundraising from bake sales to corporate sponsorship and match funding and we’re here to support you every step of the way!
If you would like to apply for one of our charity places, please fill out the registration form below. We’ll be in touch shortly after to let you know if you’ve got a place.
In the meantime make sure you apply for a London Marathon Ballot place, if you’re lucky enough to get your own place we’d love for you to still join Team Rhino so let us know if you’re successful by emailing us at email@example.com.
