For the second year in a row, a record number of registered runners (over 2,700) enjoyed a chilly morning run at the wildest 5k in town, Throo the Zoo!

New Zoo mascots Miles the giraffe and Leroy the rhino were on site to visit with runners and help celebrate the Zoo’s 50th anniversary.  Did you know that runs have been hosted at the Zoo since 1980’s “Run with the Animals?”

Overall race winners for 2019 were #644 Joey Hartlage and #1428 Sally Thompson. Click here to see more of the race results.
