It’s time to put on your running shoes and run as fast as a cheetah. On second thought, maybe that isn’t such a good idea because cheetahs can only run quickly for short bursts. Whether you’re a competitive runner or just in it for an excuse to get some exercise, the Samson Stomp & Romp is the place to be in January. The annual race on Zoo grounds brings together runners of all speeds to honor Samson, the Zoo’s famous silverback gorilla. Four races are offered: a competitive 5K run, which can include teams; a two-mile fun run; a one-mile romp; and a quarter-mile romp for children. Individual runners can pre-register for $25 and teams for $20 per runner. The children’s romp is $10 per child. Each registration includes a long-sleeve T-shirt, Zoo admission and parking. Please keep in mind that Zoo Pass memberships and gift certificates cannot be used for this event. Same-day registration costs $30. Ready, set, go!
