As well, any supporter in a participant’s party, gains free admission to the Zoo after the race. NOTE: supporters must be on site before admission gates open to the public at 9:30am. 


“What could be more sensational than serving as the presenting sponsor for a special event that supports cheetah conservation, promotes the health and wellness of our community, and simultaneously enables them to enjoy the beauty of nature and wild animals at the Zoo,” said David Day, Director of Marketing for Assurance Financial.


“We encourage everyone of all ages to come out and scamper, trot or gallop through the zoo for a fun-filled family day of adventure for the 12th year. We are thrilled to be able to host this energetic event year after year,” said Phil Frost, Zoo Director.
