Whether you are a turtle or a hare there is fun for all to be had at the Baton Rouge Zoo’s 13th annual Family Zoo Run Run 5K and Fun Run on Saturday, August 24, 2019. You are welcome to come aim for that exclusive Ostrich Egg award for first place, try out your creative skills to run in an animal-themed costume or enjoy some post-race animal crackers. It’s sure to be a wild time. Where else do you get to run alongside cheetahs, elephants, monkeys and more?
Participants can enjoy refreshments for the whole family after the race in our Capital One Pavilion area. As well, any supporter in a participant’s party gains free admission to the Zoo after the race, so you can make a family day after the race! All pre-registered participants will receive a Zoo Run Run T-Shirt on Race Day as well. You can pre-register at http://www.brzoo.org/events/special/zoo-run-run/.
