Event Day Information

JUST ONE PRICE for Zoo members and Non-members! While the registration cost is the same for all runners and walkers regardless of Zoo membership, we do ask that Zoo members bring their membership card to save us money on administrative costs so that we can give more of your registration money to the benefactors! Non-Zoo member registrants will receive their entry ticket(s) at packet pickup.
