Almost three hundred runners turned out for this year's Durrell Challenge.
The elite runners group set off from Victoria Park in St Helier at 8.30am this morning (27 September).
The race route covers 13km of Jersey's roads finishing at the zoo in Trinity.
Last year the event had around 700 participants but it had to be scaled back this year to adhere to regulations and allow social distancing.
Just 280 runners took part. They were divided into six groups of 40 with start times for each group staggered throughout the morning.
After the race 23-year-old Beth said: "I was quite nervous. I've never done this race before and with the weather I was a bit unsure how it was going to go, but it was great fun."
This year was also the first year runners were able to take part in the challenge virtually.
Around 1,000 people in total took part which meant more people than ever signed up to the event, including Durrell's CEO, Lesley Dickie.
The challenge was raising money for The Durrell Trust. The charity will find out exactly how much has been raised later in the week.
