Additional Information


Join the Fort Worth Zoo for its 24th annual family-friendly 5K and 1K fun run. Run, walk or jog your way along the Zoo’s lush main path and beautiful surrounding neighborhoods in support of the zoo's local and international conservation and education efforts.

Zoo Run participants are encouraged to dress up like their favorite Zoo animal, but a few rules: please keep all costumes appropriate; everyone 13 and older must leave their faces clearly visible and identifiable at all times, and you must wear your race bib on the front of your costume.
