This race winds through the Milwaukee County Zoo in the middle of winter. It is a good reason to keep up those New Year’s resolutions and start the year in shape. Proceeds from the race benefit the Milwaukee County Zoo.

Entry fees include a long-sleeved T-shirt, Zoo admission, beverage and parking for runner only.  Race will be held rain or shine, snow or cold, however the Milwaukee County Zoo reserves the right to cancel due to severe weather or dangerous, unforeseen race conditions. No refunds will be given.

The 5K race is officially timed and all races take place on public walkways throughout the Zoo. Due to safety concerns, no strollers, in-line skates or similar devices permitted.

During the event, take part in our mission of conservation by donating your old cell phones to the Zoo for recycling. The drop-off area is located in the Zoo’s U.S. Bank Gathering Place. Recycling cell phones reduces the need for additional coltan, a mineral extracted from the forests of Congo – home to endangered lowland gorillas. The coltan mining business has led to a dramatic reduction of the gorillas’ habitat.samsonstomp1-19-14-15
