Please join us! Every dollar we raise through this special annual event will support the conservation of endangered orangutans and their rainforest habitat in Borneo!


This is a mostly flat USATF Certified Course for Walkers and Runners through the beautiful grounds of the Philadelphia Zoo and along the surrounding city sidewalks. It starts and finishes near the Zoo Hot Air Balloon. Walkers will begin after Runners to ensure a smooth start. There’s plenty of room for spectators and additional zoo admission tickets will be sold at a discount the day of the event for those who want to cheer for friends and family. Awards and great prizes to top-finishers and age group winners, food, drink, and fun for everyone (sorry no pets allowed). No charge for children under 2 years of age. Every dollar raised from this event will support orangutan conservation!
