A massive congratulations and huge thank you to our Rhino Runners who completed the 2017 London Marathon!

The sun shone on our wonderful runners, providing the perfect conditions to celebrate our rhino heroes’ success with a post-race picnic in St James’s Park. We are so proud that all 54 crossed the finish line and have helped to raise vital funds for rhino conservation throughout Africa and Asia.

Our first runner to finish was Ben with a very impressive time of 03:22:48, with Roxy as our quickest female Rhino Runner, finishing in 04:04:24.

Our costume runners did a superb job in the warm weather. Vinny, our current record holder for the fastest marathon time in a rhino costume, came in at 04:40:26 and Liz was the quickest female costume runner with a time of 05:31:05. An inspiration to us all!

Our incredible Rhino Runner team have risen over £102,000 so far. Please help them reach their target and show your appreciation here.
