There are two start times, one for runners at 8:00 a.m., and a second for the zoo's Family Fun Run/Walk at 8:45 a.m.

Entrance to either the 5K or Family Fun Run

Complimentary Bronx Zoo general admission and parking for the entire day

A commemorative WCS Run for the Wild t-shirt

You'll also be eligible for a host of prizes based on your personal fundraising success: You can win a cheetah plush, tote bag, cooling towel, and a VIP brunch. Sign up and get a jump start on your fundraising now.
