Post-Race Activities
Join us at our H.A. Chapman Event Lodge for the post-race hospitality party, which will include the St. John Fun Run Fun Zone, face painting, and more. Runners will have access to food and beverage provided by Tulsa-area establishments.

At the conclusion of the races, you and your family are invited to enjoy the zoo for the rest of the day!*
*Must be on zoo grounds before 10 a.m. No re-entry.

Parking
You MUST be inside the Mohawk Park gates and parked by 8:20 a.m. The gates close at this time for the safety of the runners. No exceptions, and no refunds will be given due to late arrival. Gates will re-open at 10 a.m.

To avoid race day congestion, you can access the main zoo parking lot by using the alternate zoo entrance. Turn on North Winston Avenue, which is just west of Yale Avenue, off of East 36th Street North. Winston Avenue merges with Mohawk Boulevard. Follow Mohawk Boulevard around the golf course directly into the zoo parking lot. Sheridan experiences the most traffic; East 36th Street North also can be accessed via Harvard and Yale avenues.

If you need to leave the parking lot before the main gates to Mohawk Park re-open, please utilize the alternate entrance route and park at the west end of the main zoo parking lot. Once the races have started, you will be able to exit this way.

    All runners registered prior to Sept. 28 are guaranteed a t-shirt. Otherwise, all t-shirts and t-shirt sizes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • What is a Sleep Walker?

    Sleep Walkers are those individuals who would like to support the zoo without participating in the race. You can pay $20 and receive a 2018 St. John ZooRun shirt.

  • Can I push my baby in a stroller?

    Yes! Strollers are allowed in our 5k and 1-mile St. John Fun Run ONLY. Please stage yourself at the back of the pack for the safety of the other runners. You will not need to register your child as long as they stay in the stroller for the duration of the race.

  • How is the race timed?

    The 5k and 10k run will be timed using electronic timing. All runners and walkers in these races will need to wear a timing device to receive a time and finish result. Your bib tag will already be attached to your race bib number. Please attach your race bib number to the FRONT of your shirt. Bib tags are for one-time use only.

  • Are the start lines and finish lines near each other?

    No. Starting lines for all races are near the front entry of the Tulsa Zoo. The 5k and 10k races end near the Helmerich Playground. The St. John Fun Run finish line ends at the penguin exhibit.

  • Can I run the St. John Fun Run with my child and then participate in the 5k?

    Yes, but please note that the St. John Fun Run finish line and the 5k start line are on opposite sides of the zoo. No refunds will be given if you are late to the 5k start line.

  • Is there a rain date?

    There will not be a scheduled rain date. In case of rain or severe weather, no refunds will be given and all registration and sponsor fees will be considered a tax-deductible donation.

  • Why do the gates close at 8:20 a.m. for parking?

    The gates close at 8:20 a.m. on race day for the safety of the runners. The 5k begins at 8:30 a.m. in Mohawk Park, so all cars need to be parked at this time. No exceptions and no refunds will be given due to late arrival. Gates will re-open at 10 a.m. If you need to leave the parking lot before the main gates to Mohawk Park re-open, please utilize the alternate entrance route and park at the west end of the main zoo parking lot. Once the races have started, you will be able to exit this way.

    ***Please allow at least 20 extra minutes to your normal drive for race day traffic.

  • Can my family come to the zoo to cheer me on?

    YES! Until 10 a.m., families can enter the zoo for free to cheer on runners at the finish line!

  • Can I volunteer for ZooRun?

    Yes! It takes more than 100 volunteers to make ZooRun a success. Please contact our Volunteer Supervisor, Lisa, at lcobb@tulsazoo.org for more information.
