Go Wild, Get Healthy! 






Thank you for joining us for the 2018 ZooRun5K and Kidz Medical Services ZooKidsDash.  We look forward to seeing you next year!





What time should I arrive?

  • We recommend all ZooRun5K participants to arrive at Zoo Miami by 7:00 A.M. If your child is only participating in the ZooKidsDash, we recommend arriving no later than 8:00 A.M.


Are strollers allowed at the race?

  • Registered participants for the ZooRun5K may bring children in a stroller on race day. Children in strollers who have not signed up for the ZooRun5K or ZooKidsDash will need to purchase 50% discounted admission in order to enter the Zoo at the end of the race (2 and under are free)*. We ask that any parent bringing a stroller please line up at the ‘Tortoise’ corral towards the end of the start line chute.


Can children participate in the 5K race?

  • Children over the age of 2 who are not in strollers must register for the ZooRun5K should they want to walk/run along with their parents. Children 2-9 may choose to register instead for the ZooKidsDash. Only registered participants with race bibs from the ZooRun5K or ZooKidsDash will receive a shirt, finisher medal and complimentary admission to Zoo Miami after the race.


Can I walk the ZooRun5K if I don’t run?

  • Yes, you may walk the race but you must be able to finish the 3.1 miles in 1 hour and 15 minutes.


Do I have to register to watch my child participate in the ZooKidsDash?

  • Parents do not need to register to watch their children participate in the ZooKidsDash. Parents who have not themselves signed up for the ZooRun5K will need to purchase 50% discounted admission in order to enter the Zoo at the end of the race.*


Can I run the ZooKidsDash with my child?

  • One parent of ZooKidsDash participants ages 2 - 3 will be allowed to accompany their child on the ZooKidsDash course.  All other children must run the race on their own.
