Baton Rouge Zoo to host 13th annual 5K Run Run event


BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo is hosting its 13th annual Run Run event Saturday.

Presented by Lamar Advertising, the race will take place on Saturday, August 25th at 9:30 a.m. on the wildlife park’s property. 

Baton Rouge Zoo is located at 3601 Thomas Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70807. 

We’re told all proceeds collected from the annual spurt will go toward supporting the zoo and international cheetah conservation efforts.

“We encourage everyone of all ages to come out and scamper, trot or gallop through the zoo for a fun-filled family day of adventure for the 13th year. We are thrilled to be able to host this energetic event year after year,” said Phil Frost, Zoo Director

Food and refreshments will be available immediately following the race.

Any supporter that is on site before admission gates open at 9:30 a.m. in a participant’s party will be granted free admission into the zoological garden after the race.
