Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo, sponsored by Ford Motor Company, is happening on Sunday, September 9. The event includes 5K and 10K runs, the Too Wild! 5K+10K combo, and, new this year, the finish line is inside the Zoo. If you’re looking to slow it down, sign up for the non-competitive 1.5-mile Fun Walk that follows a course past award-winning animal habitats as you stroll through Zoo grounds.
Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo raises critical funds for the Ruth Roby Glancy Animal Health Complex and veterinary care for the animals at the Detroit Zoo and Belle Isle Nature Center.
All participants receive a commemorative T-shirt, a Detroit Zoological Society water bottle and a collectible finisher medal upon completion of the race.
