2nd Annual Gary K. Clarke Run for the Wild
Join us to help raise money and awareness for the elephants at YOUR Topeka Zoo. The 2nd year of Run for the Wild will feature a 4 mile chip timed run and a 1 mile walk/fun run.
Our unique race will end with you running over a quarter mile inside the zoo! Enjoy a scenic route through surrounding neighborhoods, Gage Park and YOUR Topeka Zoo.
Mark your calendars for August 25th! -- REGISTER HERE --
The "Run" is also a Walk
We encourage families to grab their strollers and come out to experience a beautiful morning at Gage Park!
Strollers are allowed for WALKERS ONLY and Non-competitive wheel chairs. No running or jogging with strollers/joggers will be allowed.
What We Are Supporting
Elephants are the largest and heaviest animals on land. Known as a keystone species, they play an important role in maintaining the balance of all other species in their natural habitat. Without them, many species would not survive. Sadly, the number of elephants in the wild is rapidly declining. Today, both Asian and African elephants are endangered. Every year more species lose their race for survival and disappear from the wild. But it is a race we can win, and YOU CAN HELP.
Join us for the 2nd annual Gary K. Clarke Run For The Wild
and raise funds to support saving these incredible animals and YOUR Topeka Zoo! more...
