You must register prior to midnight on July 3rd in order to be guaranteed a t-shirt on race day.

Also back this year is the Kids Fun Run!  All children under 10 years are eligible to participate in the Fun Run and must register online prior to midnight on July 3rd in order to receive a t-shirt. Registration for the Kids Fun Run with a t-shirt option is $15 per child. If a child wants to participate and not receive a t-shirt, they can just show up on event day (no need to register).

So grab your family and friends and get moving!  All proceeds benefit the Columbian Park Zoo and are used to fund capital improvements, various Zoo projects, and educational programs for the community In addition, we have set up a donation page on the race website to help provide additional support for the zoo.
