Join us for the 35th Jungle Jog 5k run and walk! 

Sunday, July 21, 2024, Seneca Park, 2222 St. Paul Street Rochester NY
Start Time: 8 a.m.

Join us for our 35th annual Jungle Jog 5k run and walk, and the 3rd year of our three-race series celebrating the transformation of the Seneca Park Zoo. This year’s medal will interlock with 2022 and 2023, bringing together the last piece of the puzzle as we move another step closer to new experiences coming to the Zoo. Don’t miss the chance to complete your collection!

This year’s race is featured in Rochester Runner of the Year Series for 2024! 

Bring a Water Bottle!
This year we continue the commitment to our mission of conserving wildlife and wild places by keeping this a ‘cupless’ race. We are encouraging all participants to bring a full bottle of water with them to use during the race. We will provide one refill station along the 3-mile route and at the finish line. Participants will enjoy refreshments in the Wegmans Lodge post-race. To learn more about our conservation efforts, click here.

Exclusive Jungle Jog water bottle sticker available for purchase that ties together all three animals!
