About This Activity

Our second annual Animal Ark Stampede is set for Saturday, October 11, 2014 at Animal Ark, a non-profit wildlife sanctuary located off of Red Rock Road north of Reno, NV. The event features a kids run starting at 8:30am and a fun, challenging 5K run starting at 9:00. Runners and walkers will travel up and down a scenic, high desert trail and end exploring part of the sanctuary, where the animals will be the spectators of your awesome strength! By participating, you will have fun, work hard and, best of all, help the animals because every entry fee from the Animal Ark Stampede goes to support the incredible animals that call Animal Ark their home. The Animal Ark has provided a safe haven for injured, abandoned and otherwise non-releasable wildlife since 1981. Its mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through wildlife education.
