Everyone participating in the race over age 5 will need to register as a timed or untimed participant. Young children (ages 2-5) are welcome to ride in a stroller during the race but will need a $10 race observer ticket (see what's included below). Children under age 2 are free and do not need a ticket.
Zoo Run Run has a different layout in 2024 and race observers will have access to the Festival Field area inside the Zoo to watch the start/finish and enjoy free access to the zip line, carousel and 4D theater throughout the race! Each person (ages 2+), including Zoo members, wishing to access the start/finish will need a $10 Race Observer ticket.
1st, 2nd, & 3rd place will be awarded a medal in each timed finisher category. 1st place will also receive 4 Zoo tickets ($100 value).
Thursday, February 15th and Friday, February 16th | 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm | Nashville Zoo’s Croft Center
To reduce congestion at the beginning of the race, the 2024 Zoo Run Run will implement start corrals. The race will start in waves allowing timed runners to begin ahead of untimed runners, followed by those who plan to walk or have strollers.
