  • Registration fee is $25 per participant.
  • Youth ages 3-10 run through the zoo on designated trails with trail monitors in place for safety.
  • Families are admitted free during the race only to cheer on their runner.
  • Each child runner receives a ribbon and t-shirt.
  • The race courses vary depending on age group.
  • We have specific race start times for each group to relieve congestion on race morning (May 7th):
