Bring a Water Bottle!
This year we continue the commitment to our mission of conserving wildlife and wild places by keeping this a ‘cupless’ race. We are encouraging all participants to bring a full bottle of water with them to use during the race. We will provide one refill station along the 3-mile route and at the finish line. Participants will enjoy refreshments in the Wegmans Lodge post-race. To learn more about our conservation efforts, click here.

Exclusive Jungle Jog water bottle sticker available for purchase that ties together all three animals!

Don’t forget about the Kids Fun-Run
Welcome to all kids 10 and under! No cost to participate, and each runner will receive a Fun-Run medal. The Fun-Run will take place after the 5k at 9:45 or after the last runner/walker completes the race. Please note: the road will close at 7:30am, any Fun-Run participants need to be in the park by that time, we do not allow late entry.
