This year's 5K run/walk is dedicated to saving some of the biggest of the big animals: elephants. There will be two start times: one for runners at 8am, and a second for the Family Fun Run/Walk at 8:45am. All adults and senior registrants must also raise at least $30 before the run in order to participate on April 27. The minimum fundraising requirement is waived for children. Included: complimentary Bronx Zoo admission for the entire day, and a commemorative WCS Run for the Wild T-shirt. Last year's run sold out early; register ASAP.
Address: Fordham Road and Bronx River Parkway

The Bronx Zoo is open year-round. We close on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Martin Luther King Day. Spring and summer are naturally high-attendance seasons, but we encourage guests to visit during fall and winter as well. When the weather cools off, many animals are more active and you'll encounter fewer crowds.
With 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions, it's difficult to see the entire zoo in one day. For shorter visits, take a two-hour tour of our most popular exhibits, like Tiger Mountain, Himalayan Highlands, Congo Gorilla Forest, and World of Reptiles. During the warmer months, guests with young children can begin their visit at the Children's Zoo and then stroll Astor Court to meet our sea lions and visit Madagascar! In wintertime, warm up in JungleWorld, our giant indoor rainforest habitat.
