About This Activity

Get your running shoes on and join the Henry Vilas Zoo for the 11th Annual Zoo Run Run & Kids' Roo Run Run on Sunday, September 25, 2016! Join us as we bring new twists to this much loved race as we launch our Predator vs. Prey Edition, and introduce a brand new Kids Run Course!!

The Zoo Run Run and Roo Run Run help us to keep the Henry Vilas Zoo forever free. Please join us to help us make our 11th Annual Race another record breaking year. And don’t forget to register your kids early because the 2015 Kids Roo Run sold out!!

Individual & Team Fundraising:  This year we are challenging all  Zoo Run Run participants to get involved by participating in our team and individual fundraising challenge.  The top teams will win amazing prizes only available at the zoo! All dollars raised at the Zoo Run Run and Roo Run Run directly support the Henry Vilas Zoo!

The top three teams and individuals who raise the most money win amazing prizes!

How Predator vs. Prey Works:  All participants will have the choice to sign-up to Be a Predator (Lion) or Be Prey (Zebra).  See how much Prey you can catch OR if you can keep from getting caught!

Prey (Zebras) will get a 1 minute head start before the Predators (lions) start running after them! (Start times will be adjusted for accurate race results).

Zoo Run Run Details:  

Race Day Warm-up will be provided by Lululemon Ambassadors!

All runners will receive a complimentary Zoo Run Run Predator/Prey Super Soft t-shirt with registration, along with their corresponding ears (either lion or zebra). Finisher medals will be presented for the 5K & 10K. In addition, all runners over 21 receive a free beer provided by Wisconsin Distributors.

The 10K Run and the 5K Run are chip timed.

Roo Run Run:  All Kids participating in the Roo Run Run will have two distances to choose from: a half mile or a full mile. Kids races are NOT timed.
