Well done 2016 London Marathon Rhino Runners!

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

The cloudy weather with a few sunny spells resulted in great running conditions for the 2016 team. We are so proud that all 50 crossed the finishing line and have helped raise vital funds for rhino conservation throughout Africa and Asia.

Our first runner to finish was Ritchie with a very impressive time of 03:20:15 with Abby as our quickest female Rhino Runner, finishing in 03:39:20.

All our costume runners did amazing too! Vinny, our current record holder for the fastest marathon time in a rhino costume, came in at 04:18:03 and Alexandra was the quickest female costume runner with a time of 05:57:03.

Our incredible Rhino Runner team have risen over £109,000 so far. Please help them reach their target and show your appreciation here.
