About This Activity

Lace up your running shoes!

The Detroit Zoological Society will host the annual Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo, sponsored by Ford, on Sunday, September 14, 2014.

Participants can compete in the 5K and 10K races or take part in the Fun Walk and help support the Ruth Roby Glancy Animal Health Complex and veterinary care for the Zoo's animals.

5K and 10K runners race through the scenic streets of Huntington Woods surrounding the Zoo.

Don't like to run? Fun Walk participants follow an enjoyable course throughout the Zoo past many of our award-winning habitats and receive special giveaways.

Afterward, join us for some fun at the Post-Race Party sponsored by Kroger! Bring the whole family* for a day of excitement and enjoy running or walking, entertainment, food, beverages, children's activities and the Zoo's award-winning habitats.

Registration is required for people ages 2 and up. *Zoo admission is required for non-race participants.

5K and 10K Run: Flat course (wheelchair accessible) runs around the outside of the Detroit Zoo. Fun Walk (noncompetitive/untimed): 1.5 mile path inside the Detroit Zoo
