Our Zoo Move & Groove 5K is "glowing" strong!

That’s right; the Phoenix Zoo’s annual 5K race is back and better than ever in 2022, because all registered participants get to see ZooLights after the race!

But we didn’t stop there…

Included with registration* for the 5K is a commemorative shirt, daytime admission to the Zoo, admission to ZooLights, raffle ticket(s), kettle corn & cocoa, a “glow” necklace/bracelet, and have the option to purchase a commemorative medal for $10 and/or additional shirts for $15.

Not a runner? Hibernate at home while still supporting the Zoo! All registered participants will receive a Zoo Move & Groove t-shirt and have the option to purchase a commemorative medal for $10 and/or additional shirts for $15.

Plus, Zoo Move & Groove features one of North America’s most endangered animals once thought to be extinct: the black-footed ferret. The Phoenix Zoo is incredibly proud to be one of just six black-footed ferret breeding facilities in the world! To date, the Zoo has produced over 500 black-footed ferrets in our 30 years of involvement with the breeding program, with many released into the wild.

Your participation in our Zoo Move & Groove 5K not only supports black-footed ferret conservation, but also helps care for the thousands of animals who call the Zoo home.

*Zoo Move & Groove is an exclusive fundraising event. All proceeds benefit the non-profit Phoenix Zoo including the endangered black-footed ferret.
