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!

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

For information about  sponsorship availability, please contact Erin Ward at or 260-427-6800 EXT. 152
