It was an amazing day that started in People's Park, as runners gathered for the start of the 13K.

What no one expected was the big surprise Henry had in store, as he crossed the finish line with his brother Nik on his back.

Awesome weekend that was certainly full of many firsts. I'm glad that my first ever trip to Europe could be in support of such a great cause as @thedurrellchallenge. When I first heard about this charity I loved that it not only supports the conservation of wildlife, but also the fact that it is truly a cause that brings all kinds of people from all over the world together - many I was fortunate enough to meet at the event. On top of all of that I had the pleasure of briefly meeting @henrycavill, the race ambassador, whose kindness, down-to-earth demeanor, and professionalism made the event that much more enjoyable. I'm glad I went on this adventure to experience and do something good. Definitely one for the books, and memories that will stay with me forever ๐Ÿ˜Š#wildlifeconservation #durrellchallenge2017 #cavillconservation #henrycavill #adventure #domoreofwhatyoulove #stopdreamingandstartdoing #ifnotnowwhen

The top Durrell Challenge fundraiser, Paula Morrell, got to spend some extra time with Henry and received some really cool gifts.





Young fans also participated in the Superhero Stroll.





And then it was time for the Justice League premiere raffle!



We have more to share with you, including our interview with Henry (UPDATE: It's in! WATCH), so stay tuned for that. And remember you can still contribute to his fundraising page. Let's do this again next year!

    1. A lot of people know Ben by both his friend and protector. They're are close like best buddies. I'm waiting on more videos/interviews to pop up. I wonder what happened to his leg though.
