Saturday, July 18

7:00 - 9:00 am at the Greenville Zoo

Join us for Greenville’s only 5K with a loop through the Greenville Zoo! 
Zoom Through the Zoo is a fundraiser for the Greenville Zoo, presented by the Greenville Zoo Foundation. Zoom Through the Zoo is a Greenville Track Club Corporate Shield event.

We are excited that Zoom Through the Zoo will be held on July 18 as scheduled. We are making a few changes to ensure the safety of our runners and are looking forward to another wild race this year! We have made the decision to cancel the Kids Fun Run this year for safety reasons. 

There is limited space this year, so register early!  Participants also receive one free guest pass to the Greenville Zoo!
