31st Annual ZooZoom
Sacramento Zoo Hosts Run in Land Park
Join the stampede at the 31st annual ZooZoom, Sunday, April 10th from 7:00 am until noon at the Sacramento Zoo. Lace up your running shoes to benefit the Sacramento Zoological Society and articipate in the 5K walk/run, 10K run and kids’ fun runs that are sponsored by Fleet Feet, Coca Cola, and Sacramento Urgent Care. Bring the family and enjoy the scenic tree-lined course that finishes inside the Sacramento Zoo.
For 31 years, ZooZoom has been a favorite of area runners, walkers and their families. Kids ages 3 to 12 can also participate in the Saucony “Run for Good” fun runs; from the 220 yard dash to the one–mile run, there is an event for every age group. This year, with additional support from Saucony, Fleet Feet will award at least $2,000 in grants to schools that have the most total runners and the highest percentage of kids entering the event. Contact Fleet Feet for more information about the “Run for Good” grant opportunities.
For registration and information, please visit www.sacramentozoozoom.com. Participation includes a ZooZoom t-shirt, refreshments for runners, plus free admission on race day for the runners and their immediate family (limit 4 people). Bring your entire family to ZooZoom!.
