8am 5K (timed or untimed, but course closes after 1 hour and 15 minutes)

Sleep-in Option:
Consider yourself more of a night owl than an early bird? Do you only run when something is chasing you? If so, then the all-new Sleep-In option is the perfect way for you to participate in the Fort Worth Zoo Run without leaving the comfort of your bed while also supporting the care and feeding of the Zoo's animals. Sleep-In participants will receive access to the virtual runner bag, a Zoo admission ticket and Zoo Run T-shirt. (No portion is considered a charitable contribution.)
