The Fast & the Fierce 5K Race Description

Run for Rhinos!

Join us at Freedom Plaza on Aug. 25 for Friends of the National Zoo’s inaugural The Fast & the Fierce 5K, sponsored by Aegis Project Controls!

After the race, runners can visit the Smithsonian's National Zoo for an after-party on the Great Meadow, animal enrichment, musical entertainment, animal-themed games and more.

All runners will have the opportunity to fundraise, which will directly support the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute's Global Health Program in working with local partners in Kenya to standardize, improve and provide advanced veterinary care for ill, injured and orphaned rhinos. With so few individuals left in the world, the survival of each is critically important. In addition to helping rhinos, race fundraising will also support Conservation Nation's 2018 priorities.*

Don’t want to run? You can still sign up as a fundraiser and help save rhinos from the comfort of your own couch!

*Registration fee supports the Zoo's mission. Fundraising directly supports conservation projects in the wild.
