The North Carolina Zoo will host its third annual “Run Wild” 5K this Sat., Jun. 8, at the park near Asheboro.
The race will begin and end at the zoo’s Solar Point Picnic Area in the North America parking lot, with much of the course circling through the park’s tree-lined walkways. Race day registration will start Sat. at 6:30 a.m., with the race beginning promptly at 7:30 a.m. A free kids’ fun run will take place at Solar Pointe at 8:45 a.m.
Due to limited space on the zoo’s walkways, a maximum of 600 runners will be able to participate.
The run is organized by the North Carolina Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers. More information is available at 336-879-7250 or online at http://www.nczoo.org.
