Help kick off the Midlands’ longest running holiday tradition, Lights Before Christmas, by making tracks to Riverbanks’ first annual 5k race. The wild run will wind through the park’s scenic back roads, cross the Saluda River and pass some of the most popular exhibits in the Zoo! Proceeds support ongoing conservation and education efforts at Riverbanks.
Entry fees include a commemorative Riverbanks Run T-Shirt, admission into the Zoo on race day, plus complimentary snacks at the finish line. Zoo admission is required for non-race participants, and T-shirts are not guaranteed for late registration.
Receive early bird registration of $30 for Zoo members and $40 for the general public now through November 1; registration after November 1 is $45. Runners also will receive race day admission to the Zoo and Garden.
