Walk of Fire and Ice

9 Nov 2017 18:00 - 21:00
Are you brave enough to walk barefoot across red hot embers smouldering over 800 degrees fahrenheit and broken pieces of sterile glass for the ultimate ZSL challenge? 

This year for the first time ZSL is introducing the Walk of Fire and Ice at ZSL London Zoo where fearless fundraisers can tread barefoot across burning coals and/or broken glass. Challengers can choose to walk just one of these daring paths or can double the challenge and take on both.
Taking place just after Bonfire Night, this event promises to be a fantastic high energy evening which will give you the opportunity to challenge yourself in front of friends and family who can cheer you along the way.
To secure a place you'll need to pay a registration fee of £30 for either walk or £50 to take on both, and pledge to raise a minimum of £100 for ZSL (excluding Gift Aid).

What you'll get from us

  • 'Nothing is Impossible' seminar for participants
  • Night-time zoo tour for spectating friends and family members
  • A commemorative certificate for all finishers
  • Fundraising resources
  • Prize for the highest fundraiser
  • A friendly team to support you along the way

Event details

Our Fire and Ice Walkers will begin the evening by attending a 'Nothing is Impossible' seminar. Here you will learn to face your fears and turn this into unstoppable power to overcome any obstacles. Following the seminar, you'll then be led out into the central court where friends and family will witness you take on the challenge!

Fundraising online

Once you have registered for the Walk of Fire and Ice, you can start fundraising straight away by setting up a Just Giving page. Last year more than 60 of you raised more than £10,000 for ZSL's global work for wildlife.

Walking for wildlife
Around the world wildlife is fighting for survival, facing threats such as climate change, habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade and conflict with humans. We are losing incredible animals such as pangolins and rhinos, which are hunted and traded in their millions. All funds raised from the Walk of Fire and Ice will help us to care for and conserve some of the most wonderful and endangered animals across the world.

Friends and family

We welcome friends and family to watch the challengers take on the Walk of Fire and Ice. There will be an exclusive night-time walking tour for spectators who would like to explore the Zoo after hours. This tour will take place during the participant’s seminar. There will be snacks and hot drinks available to keep you warm during the evening. Adult spectator tickets are available for £15, under 16s for £8 and under 3 for free.
