The Zoological Society and the Running Room are busy preparing for this Sunday’s 1st Annual Polar Run. The Society and Running Room have already hosted three successful !Run Wild! events and we decided to initiate the Polar Run to raise public awareness and funds for a new polar bear conservation centre at the zoo.
We have had a fantastic sign-up rate so far but we would like to really raise the roof on this race. Come out to the Assiniboine Park Zoo on Sunday March 22 and run, walk, jog, jump, skip or simply sally forth and be part of the movement.
The Polar Run
Sunday, March 22, 2009 – starting at 8:30 am
Assiniboine Park Zoo, Zoo Gift Shop entrance at 8:00 am
Events: 3 km Polar Chug, 5 km Global Trot and 10km Polar Run
For information on registration fees and getting your race kits, please visit any Winnipeg Running Room location or www.runningroom.com.
And remember, this is a great warm up for our May !Run Wild at the Zoo! event, so find a friend, a coworker, a family member, a neighbour or one of each and make your way over the Assiniboine Park Zoo.
