This is a mostly flat USATF Certified Course for Walkers and Runners through the beautiful grounds of the Philadelphia Zoo and along the surrounding city sidewalks. It starts and finishes inside the zoo near the Zoo Hot Air Balloon. The race will be limited to 1000 participants. Please register early to guarantee your spot. It will sell out!

Walkers will begin after Runners to ensure a smooth start. Free zoo admission (an $18-$20 value!) is included with all registrations. Awards and great prizes will be given to top-finishers and age group winners. There will be food, drink, and fun for everyone (sorry no pets allowed). Please stay afterwards and enjoy the animals and family fun.

There’s plenty of room for spectators. Discounted zoo admission tickets will be sold the day of the event for those who want to cheer for friends and family. Children under 2 years of age are free. Strollers are permitted. Every dollar raised from this event will support orangutan conservation!
