May 10 , 2014 - 8:00 am -
10:00 am

This is Louisville’s unique road event because the course does not go around the zoo; it goes “throo” it! So, while you give your legs their first real challenge of spring, you can treat your senses to the sights and sounds of nature—snow leopards, tigers, and flamingos. The Norton Audubon Hospital/McDonald's of KYANA Throo the Zoo 5K is a grand adventure for the entire family. Most importantly, everyone can participate—runners, walkers, and animal lovers of all ages.

Each participant also will receive FREE admission to the zoo for the day.
