Registration for the 2017 BIG CAT RACE SERIES and single race registration for the January 7th Save The Panther 5k is now open!
Our state animal, the Florida panther, is one of the most endangered animals on earth. It's estimated that there are between 100 and 180 left in the wild. Net proceeds from this race help fund our partnership with the Florida Wildlife Corridor, an organization working to protect Florida panthers and their dwindling habitat.
Every runner gets a tech-style, short-sleeve, polyester, running shirt available in men's and women's sizes. We strongly recommend that you attend an advance packet pick-up (see dates/times below) to have a better chance of getting your requested shirt size. Specific size availability cannot be quaranteed on race day and we do not over-produce so shirt size swaps cannot be accomodated. Thank you for your understanding.
Your registration includes admission to the Zoo for the day and 3 half-price discount coupons for friends and family to see you finish and explore the Zoo for the day. Plus, more discount coupons to return another day.
