Did you know that a zebra herd is called a dazzle? We want you to dazzle together for the first ever virtual ZooRun5k, benefitting healthcare and conversation heroes! Swing from the trees on your regular jogging path or run like a cheetah on your treadmill. However you choose to move, do it this year at a virtual version of our ZooRun5k, Oct. 2-11.
What is a virtual 5k?
Sure, we’d all rather be together at Zoo Miami for our annual ZooRun5k. But the next best thing is to participate near or far via our innovative virtual run ― having fun and honoring conservation and healthcare heroes while ensuring the health and safety of each other.
A virtual race allows you to complete the 5k wherever you are anytime between October 2 and October 11. The 3.1-mile distance can be completed on a treadmill, a track, or your usual running route. The convenience factor is key as you can step out your front door and start the race. Track your miles with your phone, Fitbit, or any tracker of your choice. To be eligible for a gold placer medal in your age category, you’ll submit your timed results online. The fastest participant in each age category will receive a placer medal.
What every registered participant will receive:
All registered participants are eligible to receive a $4 discount to Zoo Miami (terms and conditions apply), themed Spotify playlist, personalized bib, finisher certificate, and other digital swag! Commemorative T-shirt, medal, and socks are available for purchase and are not included in the registration fee.
