Zebra Dash 5k & Fun Run
We are excited to announce the 11th anniversary of the Zebra Dash! Join Noah's Ark & Revolution Running for an exciting day running through the trails and animal habitats at Noah's Ark. This is a great event for the whole family. The 5k will have running a trail thru the field alongside horses, goats, pigs, and peacocks and also on the path thru 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 Summer with a race like no other and then stay and hang out at Noah's Ark and see all their animals! Race proceeds will benefit the Noah's Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center! All participants will receive a finishers medal!! Since Noah's Ark reaches across the US we are offering a virtual option to anyone who can not travel or wants to run the 5K at home to practice social distancing.
