Race around the Zoo! This is a shorter course designed especially for participants under 10 years old. It begins after the 5- and 2.5-mile runners have started and goes around the outside perimeter of the zoo and its parking lot. Kids are supervised at all times during this shorter event so parents are able to run one of the longer courses.
