Brooks Jungle Pack – A Treasure Hunt and a Competition!

“Do you want to come and do a running treasure hunt around London Zoo?” – you don’t say no to this question. Cut to a rainy Saturday morning in Mornington Crescent, gathering in a cute little cafe with all my ging faves chatting to Brooks about their new Urban Jungle Pack. The Urban Jungle Pack reimagines classic Brooks shoes (Ravenna 6 and Ghost 8) in cheetah and zebra prints and the results are pretty cool indeed.

After the debrief we headed to London Zoo to start a treasure hunt. The prize? A pair of trainers from the Brooks Jungle Pack to give away to my followers! These shoes are awesome and everyone in our team (Charlie, Emma and Jen!) was keen to win so that we could host our own giveaways! We had to find five things in the zoo..

(1) Take a selfie with an animal smaller than you

Easy peasy with this little guy! (2) Share a photo of the scariest thing in the zoo

This was a close call between the SPIDER ROOM (spiders roaming free in the wild)…

…and this red-eyed demon fish.

(3) Show us some stripes

It took a lot of time to get this photo.

I also apparently really love fish

(4) Take a video of a noisy animal

It just so happened that it was really really rainy that day so all of the animals stayed inside, quietly snoozing away. This was very sensible, but it did mean that we couldn’t get a video of noisy animals! We noticed that, what with us running around all excited, we were probably the noisiest animals in the zoo that morning! We got a video of us running wild in a tunnel…

(5) Show us the comparison; which animal looks most like you? 

I actually only got down to do this impression of a gorilla because I thought it would be funny, but turns out my pose is pretty accurate.

The good news is that all our efforts were rewarded – we won! This means I get to offer a pair of these shoes for free to one of my lovely readers. All the details below!


The shoes are selling like hot cakes so the competition will be open for 48 hours only.

It’s open to residents of the UK only.

Both men and women are welcome to enter!

To enter you just have to copy on this post telling me your favourite jungle animal (Spoiler: mine is an elephant! They’re not very speedy though so not featured by Brooks in their Urban Jungle Pack…).

You can also earn an extra entry by spreading the love to your own followers and tweeting a link to the competition.

The competition closes at midnight on Tuesday 17 November and a winner will be randomly selected by Rafflecopter!

Please note that the shoes need to be ordered by Brooks on Wednesday 18 November, so please standby and be ready to email me with your preferred model (Ghost 8 or Ravenna 6!) and shoe size on Wednesday if you are the lucky winner!
