NEW! 5K / 1 MILE WALK - JUST ONE PRICE for Zoo members and Non-members! While the cost is the same for all runners and walkers this year regardless of Zoo membership ($35 before 8/15, $40 thereafter, $45 race day) , we do ask that Zoo members bring their membership card to save us money on administrative costs so that we can give more of your registration money to the benefactors! Non-Zoo member registrants will receive their entry ticket(s) at packet pickup.
KIDS MASCOT RUN (9 yrs and under), now just $10, will be around the pond inside the Zoo gates. Each child will get a special prize at the end of the Fun Run and are welcome to walk the 1-mile walk with their family. Kids who plan to run the 5k should register as adults.
JUST A SHIRT - Can't make it? No problem, you can still purchase a shirt for $20 and support our great benefactors! T-Shirts are a gender neutral preshrunk cotton/poly with a soft hand touch and run true to size.
SPECTATORS - All spectators at the race entering the Zoo will be required to purchase a special event ticket (even if you are a Zoo member) for $10.
