HOW DO RELAYS WORK?

Each person on your team will have a race bib with the same number, but a different color.  The first person to run will have a white bib. They run their 2.1 mile loop.  When getting to the transition area, the second person, with the yellow bib, will receive the baton and run their loop followed by the 3rd and 4th runner.  The timing chip is IN THE BATON!  Each runner must carry the baton during their run.

STROLLERS:

This event is not a good fit for strollers along the route.  There will be fast people coming up from behind you on the trail portion of the event, and the transition area has people turned around in order to accept the hand off of the baton.  It's just too dangerous.

 Strollers are allowed in the Runners Village.

AWARDS:

     Relay:  Top 3 teams in each relay category, except Odds & Ends (1st place only).

     4 mile:  Overall Male/Female,  1st Place Age Group Winners

                                  15 and under, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

Finisher medals to all the 4 mile individual runners.

Wow! I had an amazing time at the 37th Annual San Antonio Zoo Run. This was my first time. The Zoo staff was fantastic and seemed to enjoy themselves while serving others. The vibe was nice and it was well organized. Plus, it's all for a good cause. A win for everyone!

Organize better please!!!

Water and cold towels should be at finish line and right at baton exchange. When runners finish at 90+ degree weather we want water. The exchange should not be so far from finish line and the announcers. It was very hard to hear anything and to see the next runner. The water stations at the course should be more visible or better labeled. The volunteers should make it more obvious by offering water in cups to the runners. When I’m running at 6-7 min/mi pace it is hard to see them. The water at the course was very warm also. We need ice cold water! The awards station was not obvious. Everyone was confused where to go. And the photographer was not in the right place either. For the price we were charged to sign up, i think we should have at least vegan options for food and more stations to get our “free” drinks. The line was ridiculously long. Others complained that for the price we paid we should have at least gotten finishers medal. I personally don’t care for that. There weren’t even gatorade!!! Those are things that us runners expect in races that are provided by other companies. I will not sign up for another race again.
