New this year is the virtual participation option. On race day, registered participants can enjoy a run/walk through the zoo, continuing on to the scenic trails adjacent to it. Or, have the option to run/walk their own course between July 28 and Aug. 4. Animal costumes are encouraged for all participants.
Virtual and zoo course participants can pick up their t-shirt and enjoy a post-race event at the zoo between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Aug. 4.
Entertainment, activities and special enrichments highlight the day.
Entry fees include registration, a zoo ticket, t-shirt, goodie bag and refreshments.
Proceeds benefit the Lake Superior Zoo and their efforts to rebuild. The cost is $30 prior to race day, $25 for zoo members, or $35 on race day and $30 for zoo members.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the run starts at 8:30 a.m. with the walk starting at 8:45 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers for men and women who complete the zoo course and also for the best animal costumes.
