What is The Enormous Elephant Run: Freestyle?

A fun, family and dog friendly community event with a Vendor Village open to people of all ages and abilities. We are excited to announce that our 2019 run will consist of both a 5k and a 10k on a flat course. In order to maintain a more intimate, unique experience for our supporters, our 2019 event will also be capped, so make sure to register early to guarantee your spot!

Thanks to our incredible supporters, our 1st Enormous Elephant Run in LA (held on March 10th, 2018) in support of elephants and The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust USA was a big success and far exceeded our expectations, selling out with over 1,100 participants and raising over $100,000 for wildlife conservation. We are deeply appreciative to all of our participants, spectators, sponsors, and vendors for helping to further DSWT’s mission of conservation in Kenya.
