Whether you are a seasoned runner or just want to walk/run for fun this one of a kind race is a very unique experience and big fundraiser for the Lake Superior Zoo.

Every year around 100 people get a real up close look at some of the animals in the zoo running or walking past the enclosures and you have access to explore parts of the zoo that are normally off limits to the general public.

See all the beautiful sights and sounds the zoo has to offer while exploring off the beaten path.If you want,  dress up as your favorite animal, superhero or even a T-Rex to really give the animals and the humans something to see. Local Mascots will be on hand for a special race with the little kids that day too.

The cost is $30 in advance, $35 the day of the race and $5 for Little Kids Mascot Race. All participants will receive a cool "Run Like an Animal" T-shirt, free admission to the zoo for race after party, and your name entered into a drawing for awesome prizes as well.

The event starts at  7am (registration) and goes to 1pm, with tons of fun activities for the kids including a bounce house and special enrichment treats for the animals. For more information or to get registered click here
