Run Wild 5k Run/Walk
Please join us on Sunday, April 27, 2014 at the Philadelphia Zoo!
“Philly Run Wild – Save the Orangutans 5K Run/Walk”
To benefit Orangutan Foundation International
Description: 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 near the Zoo Hot Air Balloon. Walkers will begin after Runners to ensure a smooth start. There’s plenty of room for spectators and additional zoo admission tickets will be sold at a discount the day of the event for those who want to cheer for friends and family. Awards and great prizes to top-finishers and age group winners, food, drink, and fun for everyone (sorry no pets allowed). No charge for children under 2 years of age. Every dollar raised from this event will support orangutan conservation!
Additional Information: Pre-registration by April 10, 2014 includes a t-shirt. Free zoo admission (an $18-$20 value!) is included with all registrations. Please stay afterwards and enjoy the animals and family fun. Click here for more information.
