PARKING:
For the safety of all, please follow the directions of the parking attendants.  Parking is available in the main Zoo parking lot until about 6:30am.  Additional parking is available just across Summit Blvd. in lots A, B & C of Dreher Park South.  Allow 10-15 minutes to walk from outer lots and still arrive at check in by 7:00am.  All parking is free.

TIMING:
This run is chip-timed.  Your bib has an electronic chip that starts your timer when you pass the starting line.  We do ask that walkers and slower runners stage a little farther back in the pack to allow faster runners a clear path at the start.  Due to insurance considerations - NO strollers, skateboards, bicycles, wagons allowed on the course, nor pets/animals.

RACE COURSE:
Course Map will be posted soon.

VANITY BIBS:
All runners registered by April 1, 2019 will have their first name on the Bib.

T-SHIRTS:
The new event T-shirt is a Sport Tek - Shirts come in Men's cut and Women's v-neck

CONSERVATION OPPORTUNITIES:
Runners arriving on foot, bicycle or car-pool (4 or more runners in a vehicle) can enter into a drawing for a special drawing.  Please look for the volunteer with the entry forms near the parking lot entrance.

RUNNING SHOE RECYCLE:
We’ll have a running shoe recycling bin near the race-day tables.  Those shoes will be turned into playground surfaces.

PROCEEDS:
Net proceeds from this run help fund the Palm Beach Zoo’s partnership with Wildlife Conservation Society to protect animals in the wild.

VOLUNTEERS:
If you are interested in volunteering for the race - please contact Erin Hitsman.
