USATF Certified Course through the Zoo!! This will be a timed event. Walkers will begin after runners to ensure runners have a smooth start. The course consists of one lap inside the zoo, one lap outside the zoo and then a reverse lap inside the zoo. The start and finish are at the same spot. They are about 90 yards away from the Zoo Balloon so there is plenty of space for spectators. Additional zoo admission tickets will be sold at a discount the day of the event for those who want to cheer friends and family on but do not want to run/walk themselves (they will need to purchase a zoo ticket in order to enter the zoo). Awards for age group winners and top 3 male and female finishers.Walkers, kids, strollers welcome. Sorry, no pets. Children under 2 are free of charge for the event but if you want a t-shirt for them please order one and pay for it when you register.
