Event Details

The Red River Zoo is “otterly” excited to host a race to help support the work we do. What are we “takin” about? This event is a purr-fect way to help us race against time to save some of the world’s rarest cold-climate species. We aren’t kidding! Whether you race like a horse, stroll like a tortoise, waddle like a duck, are flying solo, or traveling in a pack, we would be happy to see you! So don’t be sheepish, hop on over. Oh “deer”, one more thing… we hope you have a howlin’ good time!
