MEDALS FOR WILDLIFE

Introducing "Medals For Wildlife" at all our 2021 Ranger Ultras' trail running events...
Celebrating runners' achievements has always been a huge part of what we enjoy about organising races. Although not every runner wants to take home a medal. So after your medal presentation picture, you now have the choice to put your medal into our Medals For Wildlife box.
 
For every medal in the box at the end of each event we'll donate the equivalent medal cost ( £3-00 ) to a wildlife charity. Similarly if you're fast enough to win a trophy, you may return this to the box and we'll donate £10-00 for each trophy. We'll then re-use these in future races, which also helps reduce our environmental footprint.
 
Race Organiser, Stu, has been a Tusk Trust supporter since running the Lewa Safaricom marathon, Kenya, in 2008. All our 2021 "Medals For Wildlife" fundraising will go to Tusk Trust.
