Like animals? Like exotic animals? Like looking at exotic animals while you run? This popular Toronto run may be just what you're looking for. The Oasis Zoo run offers runners a chance to follow a scenic 5k or 10k loop through the Toronto Zoo grounds.
10k runners will start outside of the zoo, then complete a lap inside the grounds, while 5k walkers get to spend their entire time within the zoo enclosure! You'll follow a looped course on zoo roadways and pathways past a number of different animals.
The 10k and 5k Zoo Run courses start at slightly different spots, but follow a similar course. The 10k route begins with a run outside of the zoo, basically tagging on distance before entering into the zoo itself. Once inside runners follow a loop past various animal enclosures before finishing in the south east near the zebras (when do you ever get to say that during a run!??).
