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.
Did you know that this race is part of a series of runs? If you like this race you may want to run one of the following Canada Running Series East events.
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!??).
