Get moving with the 5.3km Dingo Dash
The 5.3km Dingo Dash is a great option for those who want to walk or run around the zoo with family and enjoy the sights and sounds of animals from around the world.
This years' event will be held on Sunday 27th August 2017.
The Dingo Dash starts at 7.30am and finishes at 9.00am (1.5 hours).
If you’re a newbie runner, then the Dingo Dash is a great starting point in building your running experience. We'd love to have you on board! We have two different training plans to help you on your way - one for walkers looking to run and one for more experienced runners looking to set a new PB!
Your registration includes entry to Taronga Western Plains Zoo, your finishers' medal and water bottle.
To be considered for placegetter trophies, competitors must enter as an individual and not as part of a family in the 5.3km Dingo Dash.
Children under four get free entry into the zoo, so littlies don't need to be registered in the Dingo Dash to participate. However, if you want a medal and racing bib for your under four year old, they will need to be a registered participant.
