The Chattanooga Zoo presents Run Wild! This 5K and 1 mile event is designed to be fun for all ages and fitness levels. After all, what’s more fun than a race that ends within a zoo and involves some of your closest animal friends? Not a whole lot! What’s even better is this race benefits one of Chattanooga’s oldest community-serving nonprofit organizations, the Chattanooga Zoo.

The route will end within the Chattanooga Zoo with up-close animal encounters, refreshments and more! Be sure to dress as your favorite animal so you can really run wild!


Thank you to our 2016 Run Wild Sponsors!
