support a different endangered species each year. Since our
inaugural event in 2004, we have help to raise awareness
and funds for the following endangered species: The Eastern
Black Rhino, The Cheetah, The African Elephant, The
Orangutan, the Frog, the Chimp, the Polar Bear, Black-Footed Cat,
Sumatran Tiger and the Penguin!
This October 5th, we will celebrate our 10th Anniversary of the Kansas City Zoo Run with extra 10th Anniversary goodies!
Our event is a wonderful
combination of providing a fun, unique racecourse that starts in
beautiful Swope Park and runs through the entire Zoo.
Participants love the beautiful scenery, as they
wind their way through the wetlands of Kenya, on past
Botswana and up through Australia. This event caters to the
avid runner, with Chip Timing, to the occasional runner
or walker. Families love coming out to enjoy this great
event that showcases all of the great updates being made at
the Kansas City Zoo.
