WCS Run for the Wild 2014


RFW Event Info Banner

Make tracks for elephants in the 2014 WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo. This year's 5K run/walk takes place on Saturday, April 26, and supports our 96 Elephants initiative.  We’ll have two start times, one for runners at 8:00 a.m., and a second for our Family Fun Run/Walk at 8:45 a.m.

Registration for the WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo is $40 for adults, $30 for children (3–15) and $30 for Seniors (65+).

All adults and senior registrants must also raise at least $30 before the run in order to participate on April 26! The minimum fundraising requirement is waived for children.

And don’t wait – last year’s run at the Bronx Zoo sold out early. Secure your spot and register today!

Can't be at the Bronx Zoo on April 26th? You can still run to support 96 Elephants by becoming a virtual runner. Just commit to running or walking on your own — around town, on your treadmill, even at another 5K. When you raise $30, you’ll receive the event t-shirt; raise more and you’ll qualify for a host of great fundraising prizes!


Perks & Prizes

All registered adults and seniors who meet the $30 fundraising requirement will receive:

  • Entrance to either the 5K or Family Fun Run
  • Complimentary Bronx Zoo admission for the entire day
  • A commemorative WCS Run for the Wild t-shirt
  • NEW! Special Discounts at some of the best places to shop at the famous Arthur Avenue — the real Little Italy
  • NEW! Special 15% discount at Modells through May 1 with our discount coupon. Plus Modells will donate 5% of the proceeds to WCS and 96 Elephants.

You’ll also be eligible for a host of prizes based on your personal fundraising success: You can win a elephant plush, VIP breakfast, and a special animal experience. Sign up and get a jump start on your fundraising now.
