Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo

Sunday, September 13, 2020 | Registration opens January 10

Lace up your running shoes and join us for the annual Run Wild for the Detroit Zoo on Sunday, September 13. 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, crossing 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, water bottle and a collectible finisher medal upon completion of the race. Afterward, join us for some fun at the post-race party.

This event takes place rain or shine. All registrations are final. No refunds. On race day, please plan to arrive early. Races begin at 8 a.m. 10 Mile Road will close for the 5K and 10K races, so expect heavy traffic.
