Sprint or jog into the new year with the Zoo’s annual Samson Stomp & Romp. This unique run has people of all ages running past their favorite animals. Named after the Zoo’s late silverback gorilla Samson (1950-1981), there are four races to choose from: a 5k run that can include teams, a two-mile and one-mile run, or a quarter-mile romp for kids. Wear some extra layers and get your blood pumping as you zip past the penguins and zoom by the bears. Individual runners can pre-register for $25 or start a team and pay $20 per runner. Same-day registration is $30. The children’s romp is $10 per child. Registration includes Zoo admission, parking and a long-sleeved T-shirt. Zoo Passes are not valid for this event.
