Bridgeton Park and Zoo’s Run for the Animals 5K Run/Walk

Loading Events

Run for the Animals is a fun, family friendly event to benefit the Cohanzick Zoo.  Join us for our inaugural event!

The Cohanzick Zoo opened its gates as New Jersey’s first zoo in 1934. Home to nearly 100 animals representing more than 45 different species from around the world, the zoo has been a regional destination attraction for generations. We are a small free zoo, situated on approximately 15 acres within the city of Bridgeton’s
1100-acre park, but we provide a home for some larger-than-life animals including Holly, our Asiatic black bear! We’ve been described by many as a hidden gem nestled in the woods, well off the beaten path.

Packet pick up will be available race morning until 8:45am and Friday, 9/29/2023 (5-7pm) at the Senior Center, Bridgeton Sports Hall of Fame, Burt Avenue Rec Center

Race shirts are available free to the first 150 people to register before 9/7/2023.

Prizes will be given to the top overall Female and Male finishers.
