Join hundreds of runners and walkers as they lace up their running shoes for our Run Wild for the Zoo 5K at Philadelphia Zoo! Run or walk through our beautiful and unique campus, enjoy fun activities and entertainment, or stop by your favorite exhibit – all while raising money for some of your favorite furry friends. Run Wild for the Zoo proceeds support the more than 1300 different animals that live at the Zoo by providing funds for nutrition, habitat enhancements, medical care, enrichment activities, and more. All proceeds help fund Philadelphia Zoo operations, including providing education programs for children, feeding our collection of over 1,300 animals and keeping our Zoo safe and clean for our visitors. Event is rain or shine.
