Run for the rhinos at the Paris Zoo... with the Paris Zoo Run 2024

Published by Margot de Sortiraparis, Julie de Sortiraparis · Published on February 15th, 2024 at 08:49 a.m.
The Paris Zoological Park is offering a field day for all on September 22, 2024. Between the Paris Zoo Run, the Choupi Run for toddlers (2-5 years) and the Crazy run for older children (6-10 years), come and run at the zoo with your family or friends, to protect the rhinos.

If you're looking for a change of scenery for a jog, the Paris Zoo Run 2024 offersyou the chance to walk or run along the paths of the Parc zoologique de Paris, on a 5 to 10 kilometer course before the park opens to the public. If you're coming as a family, the Park has also thought of the little ones, with the Choupi Run for children aged 2 to 5 and the Crazy Run for children aged 6 to 10. The perfect opportunity to meet the wild animals of the Parc zoologique de Paris, in the early hours of September 24.

Take to the rhinoceros enclosure, admire the lions, giraffes, ostriches, monkeys... All funds raised by registering for the various races will be donated to the Zoological Park's white rhino conservation project. The species is threatened with extinction due to poaching. To save it, the Paris Zoological Park is committed to two conservation projects.

The first is on the ground in the Borana reserve in Kenya, contributing to veterinary care and raising awareness of the rhinos' plight among the local population. The second takes place directly in Paris, as the Park participates in a European breeding program for the species, and will welcome a female rhino into the enclosure of the two male rhinos already present.

The 5-kilometre circuit is accessible to walkers aged 3 and over, and to runners aged 8 and over, while the 10-kilometre circuit requires a minimum age of 13.Registration for the race entitles you to entry to the Parc Zoologique de Paris on the day, in addition to your race number and the usual refreshments. The 5-kilometer course takes three laps, while the 10-kilometer course requires 6 laps to complete the distance.

So don't wait to get your running shoes on! What distance will you cover on September 24?
