 Safety on Course
  • For the safety of all our participants, please note:
  • No skates, scooters or pets are allowed on the race course.
  • Single strollers are allowed, but must start the race behind the runners and move to the right to allow for passage of other participants along the course. Make sure you do not run/walk more than 2-astride so that when a runner does need to get around you, they can easily do so.
  • Heed to race officials giving direction along the course.
  • WALKERS- Stay to the right and allow runners to pass on the left
 Course Information
  • Here is a link to the map of the course: Women's Course.
  • The course will be 2 of the same loops around the Zoo. 
  • If you had trouble last time remembering how many times you went around here is a helpful tip: There will be a clock in front of the Mansion House. Check your time after you pass it the first time and if it is only doubled the next time you probably have another loop to go
