All done! Today was a very successful day at the Durrell Challenge. I can't speak for everyone but my family, my friends and I had an incredible time. The weather was perfect, laughs were had and most importantly, money was raised for an important cause. Thank you to everyone for all of your hard work in raising money, thank you to Durrell for organising such a great event and for your continued dedication towards animal conservation. See you all next year?? #DurrellChallenge #DoItForDurrell @TheDurrellChallenge
Congratulations to Team Cavill and everyone who was part of The Durrell Challenge!
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.

Here are some pictures of today's event. I felt weak towards the end but pushed through and made it to the end. And the reward was fantastic. Not just meeting @henrycavill and his lovely mum and brother but the feeling of accomplishment and pride. #doitfordurrell #thedurrellchallenge #jerseychannelislands #superman #manofsteel #lovestruck #accomplishedgoals #willbebackformore

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 😊#wildlifeconservation #durrellchallenge2017 #cavillconservation #henrycavill #adventure #domoreofwhatyoulove #stopdreamingandstartdoing #ifnotnowwhen
What a FANTASITIC time running #DurrellChallenge #durrellchallenge2017 ! Those hills! Beautiful scenery too! So pleased to have participated ! I really enjoyed it, great cause and a respectable time for a first time runner. The marshals and supporters were fantastic - thanks for spurring me on! Thanks to all at #DurrellTeam for organising a wonderful event (from beginning to end) and for the nibbles and vino in the VIP tent and to @henrycavill for my VIP signed photo - pleasure to meet you ALL! I will definitely continue to support #durrellwildlife #durrellwildlifeconservationtrust #durrellwildlifetrust and hopefully, I will be here, on the BEAUTIFUL island of Jersey to do it all again next year! A final BIG THANK YOU to everybody who sponsored me - so VERY much appreciated! #funday #running #veryworthycause #stop-extinction #doitfordurrell #thankyoueverybody xx Unofficial gun time 1h29mins
Thank you @henrycavill! If it wasn't because of you, I'd probably never travelled to Jersey, and this place is so wonderful! Hope you liked the drawings.x And a huge thanks to all people at @durrellwildlife and #CavillConservation and all participants of @thedurrellchallenge. It's been an incredible day! #doitfordurrell #durrellchallenge #HenryCavill
