The Lehigh Valley Zoo 5k/10k for animal conservation sponsored by St. Luke’s University Health Network is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year!
Enjoy one of the most picturesque running trails in all of Pennsylvania! Your 5K or 10K trek will take you through the Trexler Game Preserve, a serene animal sanctuary that totals more than 1200 acres. Your fun race will end inside the Lehigh Valley Zoo as you run past our zebras, oryx, camels, ostrich, and kangaroos, and end at our St Luke’s Giraffe Barn where Murphy and Tatu will be cheering you on!
