Kids Dash: race around the Zoo.This is a shorter course designed especially for participants under 10 years old. It begins after the 5- and 2.5-mile runners have started and goes around the outside perimeter of the zoo and its parking lot. Kids are supervised at all times during this shorter event so parents are able to run one of the longer courses.

Choose your distance:

Ghouls, goblins and humans with a desire for devilish fun can choose from two routes—5 miles or 2.5 miles.

All courses begin and end in the Zoo parking lot at Point Defiance Park. The 5 mile course is the entire Five Mile Drive loop with a water stop at the halfway mark. The 2.5 mile route starts out onto Five Mile Drive and takes a short cut so that everyone gets to enjoy the park!

Walkers, kids and strollers are welcome to join the moonlit merriment!
