The best part is, all participants will be doing their part to #RunForWildlife. Each of the beloved park icons will be championing a conservation cause, and runners will get to choose which team they want to represent when registering.

Free animal plushie keychain, water bottle and running gear

The runners’ entitlements this year are attractive for all ages – it’s pretty hard to resist such adorable keychains of tiny plush animals. 

Ah Meng the orangutan, Chawang the elephant, Canola the manatee and Sunny the hornbill. Which cuddly keychain companion will you get?

*Limited to the first 5,000 registered participants, while stocks last. 

You’ll also get a sleek blue water bottle that’ll serve you well during the run. As part of the zoo’s sustainability efforts, no plastic cups will be provided at the event. Participants are encouraged to fill up their own reusable bottles with water points on-site as opposed to buying and chucking single-use plastic bottles.

Gear up for a wildly enjoyable day out with official Safari Zoo Run 2020 running apparel, sporting a cool dark blue camo design with a variety of animal motifs of the 4 park icons hidden within. See how many creatures you can spot!
