Zebra Dash 5k & Fun Run
Join Noah's Ark & Revolution Running for an exciting day running through the trails and animal habitats at Noah's Ark. This unique 5K winds through the field in the park on to a beautiful trail and then you do a loop around the animal habitats running past the bears, lions, tigers, monkeys, and more! The one mile fun run is perfect for small kids and strollers because it's on the paved course that winds through the whole park that passes these amazing animals! Kick off Spring with a race like no other and then stay and hang out at Noah's Ark and see all their animals!
Race Day Info
Thank you all so much for coming out this Saturday to the Zebra Dash 5K & 1 mile fun run. Saturday’s forecast looks like it’s going to be amazing! We hope that you have a great race day experience so here are a few notes before race day to help answer some questions.
Early packet p/u is @ Noah's Ark from 1pm-5pm Friday for those who would like to get their # and shirt early.
Packet p/u the morning of the race starts @ 8am @ Noah's Ark in Locust Grove inside the office.
Both races will start @ 9am in front of the Animal Habitat.
Race morning parking will be in the parking lot and field across from the main office.
The office will have two restrooms open for people before the race and there are a few porto potties by the start and finish line.
Age group awards will be given out for the 5K after the last runner has finished the race.
The course will be marked @ every turn and confidence flags along the course. The course is a good mix of pavement and trail. The 1 mile and 5K start together and head inside the animal habitat where you run around all the animal cages on a nice paved path. The 1 milers will end once they get back to the start/ finish line but the 5K runners will run another 2.1 (trail/ service road) on the grounds inside the park where the animals are kept. If it rains this part will be muddy and animals are out there 24/7 so if it's not red clay.. it's probably poop. Run aware. :)
Noah's Ark will have food to purchase @ their food truck on race day. So stick around and get some nachos, hotdogs and a coke after the race and explore the beautiful grounds of Noah's Ark!
