There are plenty of runs, walks and races that take place in Philadelphia, but only one puts you on a route alongside wild animals. This annual charity 5K returns to the Philadelphia Zoo to raise money for Community Options, a local nonprofit that provides housing and other services to people with disabilities. Runners, walkers and those with strollers and in wheelchairs are invited to hit the course, which takes you past Big Cat Falls, Bear Country, Carnivore Kingdom and more.
