Jungle Jog 5K
July 17, 2022 @ 8:00 am
We’re back and in-person!! Join us, Sunday, July 17, 2022, for the first of a three–race series to celebrate the transformation of the Zoo and the opening of the new Welcome Center, Education Resource Building and Tropics Complex in 2024. For the first time ever, we’ll be offering race medals to commemorate this exciting time. Participate and collect all three! The medals will interlock to create one impressive medal.
How about creating a team and raise additional funds for the Seneca Park Zoo Society? It’s easy, AND if you raise $100 in donations, you’ll receive a Jungle Jog string backpack. Raise $250 in donations and you’ll receive a long sleeve race shirt! All funds raised will support our education and conservation efforts here at the Zoo, in our community, and around the world.
Also, this year we want to demonstrate our commitment to our mission of conserving wildlife and wild places by making this a ‘cupless’ race. We are asking all participants to bring a full bottle of water with them to use during the race. We will provide one refill station along the 3-mile route and a bottle of water at the finish line. Participants will enjoy refreshments in the Wegmans Lodge post-race.
Don’t forget about the Kids Fun-Run for kids 10yrs and younger! No cost to participate, and each runner will receive a Fun-Run medal. The FunRun will take place after the 5k.
There will also be a ‘virtual’ option to participate as we have done the last couple years in addition to the traditional in-person option. Virtual runners will register and perform their 5k wherever they choose between July 17th – July 30th. Please note virtual participants will not be eligible for race prizes.
