About This Activity

The Run For Wildlife 5k start/finish line is located at Busch Gardens® Tampa in Parking Lot D, with parking included in race entry*.  The 5k chip-timed course takes participants through Busch Gardens for most of the 3.1-mile race, and there will be animals and character appearances throughout the course.  

Spectators are welcomed at the start/finish line, however, only paid 5k participants are allowed in the park during the run, as well as following the race. Awards will be presented to Overall Male and Female Finishers. 

For your safety and the safety of other runners/walkers, no baby joggers, strollers or wheelchairs are allowed during this timed event.  The course has a number of turns and ramps that would make it difficult to safely maneuver a baby jogger, stroller or wheelchair.

Please note there will be No Race Day Registration! 

Participants must maintain at least a 16 min. per mile pace or they will be transported back to the finish line.  Race perks include: 

  • Post-race admission to Busch Gardens Tampa valid for race participant only on Sat., Nov. 22, 2014.*,
