Reasons why you should run the Colchester Stampede
YOU RUN THROUGH COLCHESTER ZOO
This is the first event ever to run through one of the UK’s most popular Zoos. You will start off and make your way through the Zoo’s wild safari walk to then head out onto the roads of Colchester before running back through the Zoo towards the finish.
THEY ARE ROAD CLOSED RACES
Running around the beautiful country roads surrounding Colchester Zoo.
YOU ARE RAISING MONEY FOR A GREAT CAUSE
Colchester Zoo has always cared passionately about the world’s threatened species, and created its charity Action for the Wild to assist projects worldwide. It provides both financial and technical assistance, and aims to raise awareness among local people in community conservation programmes, as well as supporting conservation research.
