A Winter 5k Adventure
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. Proceeds from Zoo Run Run help fund the Zoo's conservation work. Zoo Run Run is a rain, snow or shine event.
Friends and families are welcome to join us for a brisk stroll instead of a run. Be aware that some of the course is off-road.
Have little ones? Grab your off-road stroller and join the fun!
Please note, pets are not allowed on Zoo property and all service animals must be registered at the Zoo's ticket booth.
Race Participant - $40* (untimed) or $45* (timed)
Choose to run or walk as a timed or untimed participant. Every in-person registrant receives a t-shirt, a race bib, post-race refreshments and free access to attractions until 5:00 pm.
Everyone participating in the race over age 5 will need to register as a timed or untimed participant. Young children (ages 2-5) are welcome to ride in a stroller during the race but will need a $10 race observer ticket (see what's included below). Children under age 2 are free and do not need a ticket.
*Pricing increases by $10 on 2/11. Members save $5 per ticket through 2/10.
Race Observer - $10
Zoo Run Run has a new layout in 2023 and race observers will now have access to the Festival Field area inside the Zoo to watch the start/finish and enjoy free access to the zip line, carousel and 4D theater throughout the race! Each person (ages 2+), including Zoo members, wishing to access the start/finish will need a $10 Race Observer ticket.
