It’s our second annual Animal Ark Stampede Trail Run!  Dress in your favorite animal costume or print and take on this challenging 5K Trail Run/Walk through the beautiful high desert that supports the winter care of our animals.  Be sure to bring the family as e will have face painting, a 1/4 Mile Kids Run, raffle prizes and booths.  Register by September 29 to guarantee your shirt size and receive a discount.  Join your high school’s team and compete for a chance to win $500 for your high school!

Join us for a fun challenge in a beautiful setting.  This 5K Trail Run/Walk covers scenic high desert trails and portions of Animal Ark’s Wildlife Sanctuary.  By participating you will have fun, work hard and, best of all, help the animals – every entry fee from the Animal Ark Stampede goes to support the spectacular animals that call Animal Ark home.  Animal Ark has provided a safe haven for injured, abandoned and otherwise non-releasable wildlife since 1981.  Its mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through wildlife education.

NEW: Sponsors have graciously awarded Animal Ark funding as prizes for schools who participate in this year’s Animal Ark Stampede!  The three schools with the highest participation receive $500, $300 and $200 respectively.  Contact Alex at [email protected] for more information on this program.

It’s all happening at 8:00am on Saturday, October 11, 2014!
