The Lehigh Valley Zoo’s Run Wild 5k/10k for Animal Conservation, sponsored by St. Luke’s University Health Network, is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year!


Enjoy one of the most picturesque running trails in all of Pennsylvania! Your 5K or 10K trek will take you through the Trexler Game Preserve, a serene animal sanctuary that totals more than 1200 acres. Your fun race will end inside the Lehigh Valley Zoo as you run past our zebras, oryx, camels, ostrich, and kangaroos, and end at our St Luke’s Giraffe Barn where our Masai Giraffe, Tatu, will be cheering you on!

The Zoo’s Run Wild takes place Sunday, August 15, 2021. The 5k will start at 8:30 AM with the 10k to follow at 8:45 AM. The races start in the Zoo’s parking lot. There will be separate award ceremonies after each race on the zoo sun deck.
