Charles Paddock Zoo to present, ‘Running With Wildlife’ virtual challenge 

–The Charles Paddock Zoo has announced a brand new, virtual event that will engage the community in a healthy and fun activity while supporting the zoo’s ongoing wildlife conservation and education efforts. “Running with Wildlife” is a great way for families to stay active together while supporting the zoo.

Community members are encouraged to register now and then join the race anytime between Aug. 22 through Aug. 28 to run or walk, bike or skateboard, indoors or outdoors – for a half marathon, 10K, 5K or 1 Mile, your choice, done your way. Participation is all that counts and you’ll have an entire week to complete the distance.

All registrants will be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize: Disneyland tickets. All races are $10 per person, or you can choose to upgrade your registration to $20 to receive the official Running with Wildlife t-shirt. Register now at

Note: The event is completely on the honor system. You are not required to prove your participation, but you are encouraged to upload photos of your family running, a video of your run, or a shot of your fitness watch, step counter, or anything else that shows how far you’ve come. Join from any location and let us know where you’re participating from on our social media channels!

With a whole week to complete the event, participants are reminded to please adhere to the CDC recommended safe distancing guidelines; wear a facemask when in an indoor public space and outdoors when safe distancing isn’t possible; and avoid trails and walking paths during peak usage times. If interested in sponsoring this event or to find out more, please email
