Lace up your running shoes!

Join thousands of runners and walkers as they lace up their running shoes for the annual Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo, sponsored by Ford Motor Company, on Sunday, September 8, 2019. The event includes 5K and 10K runs, the Too Wild! 5K+10K combo, plus a non-competitive Fun Walk. Runners in the 5K and 10K events start at the Zoo’s 10 Mile Road entrance and wind through the scenic streets of Huntington Woods and cross the finish line INSIDE the Zoo! Walkers follow a course past award-winning animal habitats as they 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.

Event takes place rain or shine. On Race Day, please plan to arrive early. 10 Mile Road will close for the 5K and 10K races, so expect heavy traffic.
