Zoo Run Run

Join a herd of runners at Zoo Run Run! This winter race takes runners and walkers on a 5K adventure throughout the Zoo’s property, including areas not available to the public. Families and children are encouraged to bundle up as they hit the trail. All proceeds from the Zoo Run Run help fund Zoo operations, including providing education programs for children, feeding our collection of over 2,300 animals and keeping our Zoo safe and clean for our visitors.

Families and friends may come out for a brisk stroll, instead of a run. Have little ones? Grab your off-road stroller and join the fun!
