Stacey Konwiser Memorial Save The Tiger 5k

Big Cat Race Series at Palm Beach Zoo

Registration for the May 20th Stacey Konwiser Memorial Save The Tiger 5k is now open!

It's estimated that there are fewer than 250 Malayan tigers left in the wild.  Proceeds from this run/walk help support our partnership with WCS at Endau Rompin National Park in Malaysia to protect tigers and their habitat.  The course for this run takes you directly past our Tiger River habitat where two of our tigers live!

Every runner gets a tech-style, short-sleeve, polyester, running shirt available in men's and women's sizes.

Men's size chart, women's size chart, youth's size chart

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 guaranteed 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.
