Join the fun at San Diego's most unique and "wildest" running event, which attracts runners from all over the world! All runners receive an event T-shirt and goodie bag and will be treated to healthy refreshments, entertainment, animal encounters, and an awards ceremony. As an added bonus, all runners receive free admission to the Safari Park for the remainder of the day (a $42 value)! It's no wonder our race has quickly become one of Southern California's favorites.
The 13.1-mile course starts at Westfield North County Mall and finishes inside the Safari Park. Runners experience a fun and scenic course, passing wine vineyards, horse farms, golf courses, and behind-the-scenes areas inside the Safari Park with spectacular views of exotic animals! We also provide aid stations every two miles with water, sports drinks, and lots of encouragement.
Runners can participate individually or join a team. There are fund-raising opportunities as well: this year, funds will go toward rhino conservation in the wild, supporting anti-poaching laws, managing rhino translocations and reintroductions, and improving security at wildlife reserves; and toward animal care and enrichment for the greater one-horned rhinos at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. There are great prizes for the top three individual fund-raisers and the top three team fund-raisers, as well! The deadline for fund-raising is May 10, 2013.
Join us for a great day and a great cause!
