Run Wild Color 2

Run Wild with us on Friday, May 17th. This event is being held in partnership with Fort4Fitness and will be a unique twilight run with a path that runs both outside and INSIDE the zoo! Participants will receive a race t-shirt, timing bib, and finisher medal. Because some of our pathways are tight, there are two different waves for this race. Both will run the same route, they just have different start times. Please note that there are multiple terrains participants will travel over, including concrete, wooden bridges, grass, and gravel. It will be the wildest 5k you’ll participate in all year!

Sponsorships are no longer available for this event.

Racers must register in advance, there will be no on-site registration.

Can someone pick up my packet for me?

Yes, they will need to bring a copy of your confirmation email.

Are walkers allowed for Run Wild or is it for runners only?

Walkers are welcome! The course closes at 8:30 p.m. so all participants and spectators need to be outside the Zoo by that time.

If you do NOT want a shirt and timing bib for your stroller rider, they do NOT need to be registered separately.
