Description

This year we're running to support giraffe conservation! Everyone who runs or walks will receive a Run Wild t-shirt and a pair of giraffe socks. Kids who sign up for the Wild Child fun run will get a finisher medal instead of socks.

You can sign up for Run Wild as a 5k or 10k distance. Join us at the Zoo on Sunday, September 25 for one of our biggest fundraisers of the year!

** We listened to your feedback and have adjusted our race times this year! The 10k race will start at 8am. The 5k race will start at 8:30am. The kid's 1-mile fun run begins at 10:00am. **
