About the Race

The Birmingham Chapter of AAZK (American Association of Zoo Keepers) presents the 16th Annual Zoo Run: Sprint for Sloths; Run Because They Can’t. The money raised will be donated to The Sloth Conservation Foundation. We have also added a sloth lifestyle/t-shirt only option. 

All race participants will receive a custom race t-shirt, an admission ticket to be used at The Birmingham Zoo on race day, and a custom race bib. Awards will be granted to the fastest and slowest runners. A reminder that the admission ticket is only for the active participant, so any individuals who wish to attend will need to purchase a separate Spectator ticket (Sloth Observer).

Kid Races

We are excited to offer four separate kid races based on ages. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest and slowest runner for each age division. All race participants will receive a custom race t-shirt and an admission ticket to The Birmingham Zoo on race day. Please remember that the admission ticket is only for the active participant, so any parents or chaperones who wish to attend will need to purchase a separate Spectator ticket (Sloth Observer).

Sleep-In Option

Want to have a sleepy sloth morning? Select our Sleepy Sloth Registration option to receive a ZooRun t-shirt and an admission ticket to the Birmingham Zoo on race day to take a leisurely sloth-paced stroll around the zoo!

T-Shirts

To be guaranteed your preferred t-shirt size, all orders must be sent in by April 9 by 6 pm. Any late registrations will receive a t-shirt as part of the race packets, but sizes will depend on availability.
