Lions! Tigers! Bears! Oh my… ELLE gets set to stampede London Zoo

ELLE gets set to stampede London Zoo

We’re going wild during Fashion Week in support of ZSL’s worldwide conservation efforts. The ZSL London Zoo Stampede is a savage 10k starting in the zoo and opening up into the wilderness of Regent’s Park, which will see us racing against a backdrop of exotic animals through one of the world’s most iconic green spaces. The Zoological Society of London works tirelessly to promote the conservation of animals and their habitats through scientific research, education, and protection, and the ELLE Running Club is excited to (hopefully) lead the pack in support of their important work. Plus, we want to see penguins. Who doesn’t love penguins?
