About the run

Introducing the All-New Garmin Run Series at Johannesburg Zoo!

Gear up for an electrifying night of adrenaline-pumping action as the highly anticipated Garmin Run Series races its way to the iconic Johannesburg Zoo on September 15th. Experience the zoo like never before, as we unveil a fully secure course that offers a unique perspective on this magnificent location. Twist and turn through the entire trail, exploring some of the zoo’s finest features, while embracing the thrill of a night race.

Choose your challenge and conquer the night with our 10km and 5km route options. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete seeking a test of endurance or a passionate beginner looking for a new adventure, there’s a distance for everyone.

Register online to reserve your spot and take advantage of this limited-time offer. The registration fee for the 10km race is R210, and the 5km race is R185.

Take to the night trail run that will meander you through the zoo and along adjacent trails which ultimately make up the 9,8km for the longer distance and 5km for the fun runners. You will cover different terrain, from grass to concrete but not tar along this trail. You will literally be going through the in’s and out’s of Joburg zoo on this course. We do suggest the use of a headlight as it is impossible to light the entire course and the load shedding is an ever present threat. 

But that’s not all! Throughout the event, we have incredible giveaways from our partners, including USN and New Balance. Plus, the first 200 registrants will receive special Early Bird merchandise, adding to the excitement and rewards of participating.

Once you’ve conquered the trail, kick back and relax in the post-race celebration area. Enjoy live entertainment while you recharge with a great selection of options to rehydrate and refuel your body.

The Garmin Run Series has a history of immense success in Europe, and now it’s making its mark in Johannesburg. Join us and be part of this extraordinary event that combines the thrill of running with the beauty of the zoo.

Parking won’t be an issue! There is ample free secure parking available at the venue, ensuring a hassle-free experience for participants and plenty of space for supporters to come and enjoy the evening with us.

We’re proud to partner with USN, New Balance, and Joburg Zoo to bring you an unforgettable night race experience.
