Stacey Konwiser Memorial

Save The Tiger 5k

 

Saturday, May 14, 2016

7:30am

The first 500 650 runners registered get a free t-shirt. 

We are making arrangements for every runner/walker registered to get a shirt!!!  Please note...only the 1st 650 registered will be able to pick up their shirt at a packet pickup location or at race day check-in.  Everyone from #651 on will get their shirt after race day.

Run or Walk to help save the Malayan tiger!  And this year, we hope you'll join us in commemorating Stacey Konwiser's life and her love of all cats...especially tigers.

The Malayan tiger is the most endangered of the 5 remaining species of tigers.  It's estimated that there are fewer than 250 in the wild.  The Palm Beach Zoo works closely with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), supporting species and habitat research and protection at Endau-Rompin National Park in Malaysia. A portion of your race registration fee helps fund our involvement with WCS.

You'll run or walk through the beautiful paths of Dreher Park and finish the race inside the Palm Beach Zoo passing our Tiger River habitat where 2 of our 4 Malayan tigers reside.  You'll also run past wallabies, Fennec foxes, New Guinea singing dogs, ocelots, and siamang gibbons on your way to the finish line at the fountain plaza.

This run features a tech-style short-sleeve polyester running shirt with men's and women's sizes. Register early to be sure you get one.

Your registration includes admission to the Zoo for the day and discount coupons for friends and family to see you finish and explore the Zoo for the day.
