About This Activity

Timed 5K Run

Our unique course travels three times through the twists and turns of the Zoo, allowing the runner to enjoy a brisk autumn 5K run in the beautiful surroundings. Stay after the run to enjoy some free coffee and pastries and to hear the announcements of our race winners.

Kid's Fun Run

After the main 5K race, we will have an untimed "Fun Run" for children 5-15, which includes one loop through the Zoo. Prizes will be given out to our winners. The $25 fee includes an event t-shirt, food and admission to the Zoo for the day.


Not a runner but want to cheer one on? We welcome you to join us as well! Spectators have two options- $25 admission includes an event t-shirt and admission to the Zoo. $20 does NOT include a t-shirt and does include admission. Come join us in support of our unique school and cheer on our runners!

T-Shirts, Food and More

All pre-registrant runners will receive a quality short-sleeve dri-weave performance race shirt for the event and zoo entrance. Also, we like to treat our guests well- drinks, fruit, pastries, pizza and more will be available for free for all race participants and spectators.
