      Run for Rhinos

      PA Rhino Conservation Advocates (PARCA) welcomes you to our 4th annual Run for Rhinos on June 7th! Our mission is to prevent extinction of the rhino and to preserve its ecosystem. The funds raised will continue to go toward educating the public about rhino conservation and to partner organizations who are transporting rhinos out of high poaching areas, re-establishing rhino populations in areas decimated by poaching and providing care for poaching victims that survive. Rhinos are being killed at rates that outpace how quickly they can reproduce. We must act NOW to prevent extinction. Save a species! The race will take place at the Philadelphia Zoo. Registration opens at 7 AM, 5K starts at 8:15 am, 1 mile 8:30 AM. 5K Awards: Overall and Age Groups - Top M/F overall (medal and prize), Top 3 M/F in each age group (medal). Amenities: A 5K running (1 mile walking) course in and around the zoo, t shirt, refreshments, water stations and prizes for the overall winners. You must register by May 20th to guarantee a T shirt. Groups / teams of 5 or more can get a group rate - email for details (parcasavesrhinos@gmail.com or from this race page). Entry includes zoo admission for the day. Parking is an additional $16 (members can use their membership benefit). Spectators can buy a ticket ($20) to cheer you on and they also can stay and enjoy the zoo afterwards! Children under 2 can participate and enter the zoo for free (strollers are welcome). Zoo members cannot use their membership for entry to the event. There are no lockers available at the zoo, but your wristband allows you to leave and re-enter the zoo. Cost: 5k - $40 until 6/12, $45 after; 1 mile walk - $27 until 6/12, $30 after.
