*It is with great sadness that I must let you know the 2020 Philly Rabbit Run has been deferred to next year.  The Corona virus has impacted the Philadelphia area and our City government has compelled all events of this size to be canceled.

We have been in contact with the Philadelphia Zoo and have booked Saturday April 3, 2021 for the 2021 Philly Rabbit Run.  If you have already registered for this event it will be deferred to the new date. Your donation pages will stay open for a up until the new date.  This will allow you to continue fundraising. 

Details of the race deferment will be forthcoming.

We look forward to seeing you at next years Philly Rabbit Run. Stay safe and in good health.*

Run wild at the nation's oldest zoo on April 11, 2020 at the 7th Annual Philly Rabbit Run 5k race/1m walk at the Philadelphia Zoo to benefit Parkinson's Disease and to commemorate Parkinson's Awareness Month in April.

Make tracks to the zoo and join Shake It Off, Inc. for their 7th Annual Philly Rabbit Run 5k run/1m walk. This event promises to be a wildly-awesome experience and fundraiser.  Participants will enjoy an extraordinary opportunity to run inside the nation's oldest zoo’s 42 acres of lush gardens with more than 1200 rare/endangered animals before it is open to the public.
