Philly Rabbit Run at the Philadelphia Zoo for Parkinson's

Run wild at the nation’s oldest zoo on April 11, 2020 at the 7th Annual Philly Rabbit Run 5k race/1m walk at the Philadelphia Zoo to benefit Parkinson’s Disease and to commemorate Parkinson’s Awareness Month in April.

This event promises to be a wildly-awesome experience and fundraiser.  Participants will enjoy an extraordinary opportunity to run inside the nation’s oldest zoo’s 42 acres of lush gardens with more than 1200 rare/endangered animals before it is open to the public. For the serious runner, this is chip-timed race, but also a great time for the leisurely walker.  Come for the run, stay for the zoo!
