BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — BREC is being extra cautious by making the decision to move the date for the 15th Annual Zoo Run.

The new date for the event which takes place on Zoo grounds is Saturday, November 14.

“Our hope is that phasing will be improved by November and we will be able to host a relatively traditional race that so many families and fitness enthusiasts in the Baton Rouge area look forward to each year,” said Phil Frost, Baton Rouge Zoo Director.

For the first time this year, all participants will receive a medal and the entire race will be run inside the BR Zoo.

According to the Zoo, “all proceeds from the race support the Baton Rouge Zoo
and international cheetah conservation efforts.”
