Fitness Events For Everyone
Fort4Fitness motivates and inspires the community by hosting fitness events created for people of all ages and athletic abilities. This includes the four signature seasonal events along with summer-long programs and virtual challenges.
Run Wild at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo on Friday, May 17th, 2024! Join Fort4Fitness and the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo for the first-ever twilight run, INSIDE THE ZOO! The route will have multiple terrains: concrete, wooden bridges, grass and gravel. Be prepared for it all as you travel through Africa, Australia, through Stingray Bay and past the Peacock Cafe. Participants will receive a commemorative race shirt, timing bib, and a finisher medal. Race routes for Wave 1 and Wave 2 are the same; the only difference is the start time. The Zoo paths are narrow in some areas, so there will be a participant cap. There will be NO on-site registration. Proceeds go to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.Event Details
