Run 111miles for the White Lions …………………. Your Chance to Run with and for the Pride


Of course you don’t really have to run all 111 miles,

although one superstar supporter is !!!!! … so, will you

embrace your Lion Courage and challenge yourself to do

something you might think you can’t by joining us on a fun run for the lions.                 big-cat-vector-clipart-of-a-running-brown-king-lion-character-wearing-a-crown-by-cory-thoman-219-150x150  big-cat-vector-clipart-of-a-running-brown-king-lion-character-wearing-a-crown-by-cory-thoman-219-150x150  big-cat-vector-clipart-of-a-running-brown-king-lion-character-wearing-a-crown-by-cory-thoman-219-150x150

You can do as little as 1 mile or as much as a marathon the choice is yours. Do your personal best time or join me and saunter along with a smile and a donations bucket, it’s up to you – the more diversity we have in each Pride the better :o)

Why not create an achievement that will be with you for the rest of your life and benefit the world’s lion population in the process. 

This year one of our main awareness-raising and fundraising events is a series of runs in the UK and Ireland from April to October and we’re looking for people to join in and create a PRIDE of runners at each event.



The idea was initiated by one of our fabulous UK supporters, Ann  Fowler, pictured here with Game of Thrones actor and White Lion Trust patron Jerome Flynn.

Jerome & Ann Tshirts









Jerome and Ann are wearing the White Lion T-shirts that we’ve created for the runs and each person who joins the 111 Miles for White Lions will receive one of these wonderful Tshirts FREE. Our thanks to artist Sue Parker for her design.

Ann’s a mum to Jessica and Poppy and 3 years ago did no running whatsoever and described herself as a couch potato ! The sad loss of her mum to cancer changed all that and she decided she wanted to give something back to the hospice who had helped her mum so she did a sponsored run for them.
Now she’s doing 15 sponsored runs for the White Lions, totalling 111 miles and our goal is to get a pride of runners to join her for each event. So whether you’re lean and fit or overweight and under-exercised like me why not get involved and co-create these events with us. Ann is going to share with us how she made the change.

Your involvement will be invaluable in helping us raise awareness about the plight of White Lions and Golden lions as well as raising much needed funds for our work in protecting these magnificent and sacred creatures.

It’s 3 easy steps away:

1. Choose which run you want to join.

2. Regsiter for the run

3. Create your sponsorship page on Just Giving and join our team. Then share it with friends and colleagues and inspire them to become part of the Pride too.


If you don’t see a run that suits you or you’re in another country then why not gather your own Pride and create your own run and still be part of this energy.

BECOME The Pride !!

Lions on a Mission!
