Zoo Run

Can you fly faster than a Rainbow Lorikeet? Run like a Emu? Out-waddle a Wombat? Join Zoo Run and help out a good cause.

Here’s your opportunity! Introducing the first Zoo Run for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Yes, that’s right, a Zoo Run is a fun run where you’ll run through Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Zoo Run will be a fundraiser for the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital so you will be getting sweaty for a good cause!

If you are a serious athlete – take on the 5 kilometre challenge! This course is NOT for the faint hearted or unfit! There are some very steep Hills, narrow windy bush track with awesome obstacles and challenges for the single runner.

Not so serious? No worries, how about a 2 kilometre family fun run / walk. You can even dress-up if you are that way inclined! There will even be a prize for best-dressed entrant/team!

This unique event will take place on Sunday 23rd November 2014, starting at 6:30am and finishing by 8:00am. Yes – you’ll be in there before the crowds, so the zoo will be nice and quiet (just you and a couple of hundred other competitors).

Prices are only $50 per participant for the 5 km run, or $40 per participant for the 2 km family fun run/walk. Riding in a pram or stroller is not permitted on the 5km bush track. If you are taking bub out to enjoy the beauty of Currumbin, please join in on the 2km paved path way. There might still be a few bumps and hills along the way, so be ready for it! Children aged 3 and under are also free.

On November 23, head over to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and join Zoo Run. Help fund Currumbin Wildlife Hospital which does amazing work with animals.
