  • Palm Beach Zoo’s Big Cat Race will be held on May 4th at 7:30 AM. The Big Cat Race is a 5K that the entire family can enjoy whether they are racers or spectators. Spectators for the race automatically get free zoo entry and racers will receive an eco-friendly medal and a vanity bib. For more information about the race or to register, please visit palmbeachzoo.org.

    PARKING:
    For the safety of all, please follow the directions of the parking attendants.  Parking is available in the main Zoo parking lot until about 6:30am.  Additional parking is available just across Summit Blvd. in lots A, B & C of Dreher Park South.  Allow 10-15 minutes to walk from outer lots and still arrive at check in by 7:00am.  All parking is free.

    TIMING:
    This run is chip-timed.  Your bib has an electronic chip that starts your timer when you pass the starting line.  We do ask that walkers and slower runners stage a little farther back in the pack to allow faster runners a clear path at the start.  Due to insurance considerations – NO strollers, skateboards, bicycles, wagons allowed on the course, nor pets/animals.

    RACE COURSE:
    Course Map will be posted soon.

    VANITY BIBS:
    All runners registered by April 1, 2019 will have their first name on the Bib.

    T-SHIRTS:
    The new event T-shirt is a Sport Tek – Shirts come in Men’s cut and Women’s v-neck

    CONSERVATION OPPORTUNITIES:
    Runners arriving on foot, bicycle or car-pool (4 or more runners in a vehicle) can enter into a drawing for a special drawing.  Please look for the volunteer with the entry forms near the parking lot entrance.

    RUNNING SHOE RECYCLE:
    We’ll have a running shoe recycling bin near the race-day tables.  Those shoes will be turned into playground surfaces.

    PROCEEDS:
    Net proceeds from this run help fund the Palm Beach Zoo’s partnership with Wildlife Conservation Society to protect animals in the wild.

    VOLUNTEERS:
    If you are interested in volunteering for the race – please contact Erin Hitsman.
