Local runners will hit the pavement to participate in the 2013 Dart Frog Dash, a 5K run/walk put on by the Toledo Zoo. The race will take place Saturday, May 18, at 8:30 a.m.
“Our event accommodates the serious runners as well as those looking for a fun time or even just to bring family,” said Robin Guidera, development manager for the Toledo Zoo. “This is a great family-oriented event benefiting a family organization.”
The University of Toledo is partnering with the zoo to encourage participation in this event. The funds raised will support operating expenses of the Toledo Zoo.
The adult 5K run/walk will wind through the zoo grounds, taking participants through the residential streets in the area. The popular 1K Kid’s Fun Run will be restricted to zoo property.
Last year, the Dart Frog Dash was ranked as one of the top 5Ks in the area in terms of participation. The Toledo Zoo is expecting a great turnout again this year, Guidera said.
The cost for registering is $20 for 5K participants who sign up before Sunday, May 12, or $29 the day of the race.
Additional race details will be provided upon registration.
