Run Wild 5K/10K at the Hogle Zoo

The Salt Lake Launch Team is excited to announce the Run Wild 5K/10K at Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City on July 31, 2021. Come run wild around the zoo as you help support the Zoo's conservation efforts and the The Launch Team, whose mission is to get youth running.

All runners will get the following t-shirt and medal and a free pass to the zoo, which can be redeemed after the run or on another day.

This event is open to everyone. Our Launch Team youth will also be running it as part of their training preparing them for their fall half marathon. Please join us for this unique opportunity to run amongst the zoo animals and support our missions. Costumes are welcome and encouraged.
