Join Trails for Trunks: The Ultimate Charity Event for Elephant Conservation!

Get ready to make a global impact!

Support our Charity fundraising event for World Elephant Day with South Africa’s first dedicated elephant orphanage, HERD Trust.

HERD’s Trails for Trunks event started in 2022 on a virtual scale and in 2023, sees a fun, first-time physical event, in South Africa, to create “aweh”ness for elephants and get more people from the local community involved. Those who cannot join physically are more than welcome to still attend virtually!

Run/Cycle for Elephants

The Trails for Trunks event invites you to run or cycle on 12 August 2023, on World Elephant Day, at The Big Red Barn, Pretoria. Put on those trail running shoes and bring bundles of enthusiasm to raise “aweh”ness for HERD and elephants.

Registration opens at 7am. Starting time: 8am. There are three distances available: 5km, 10km, 21km.

There will be plenty to enjoy on the day in the name of elephant conservation and family fun, including stalls, food, merchandise goodies, raffles, prizes, music and more.

HERD Trust relies on public funding to cover the operational costs to care for and support elephant orphans and the rescued herd. All profits from the event go to HERD Trust.

You can register online in the link below.
