Dash over and join us on May 11th at 8:00 a.m. for the 26th annual Throo the Zoo 5K run/walk.

Enjoy the wildest 5K in town as you race “Throo” the Zoo alongside some of your favorite Zoo residents like giraffes, rhinos, flamingos, bears, and more!  The course will take you on a journey past 2 NEW Zoo habitats opening in Spring 2019.  Colobus Crossing invites you to marvel as colobus monkeys and Schmidt’s red-tailed monkeys leap and swing from place to place in front of your eyes and maybe even directly overhead!  Our majestic Snow Leopard Pass will transport you to a small Himalayan village in Nepal and provide information about the elusive snow leopard — plus you’ll learn how villagers are striving to live in balance with the snow leopard to support conservation of the species.

 

All participants receive a free cotton t-shirt, commemorative finishers medal, post-race refreshment and refueling options, and free race day parking and admission to the Zoo so you can enjoy your Zoo at a much slower pace after the race!
