Tell them you're there to watch/support the runners

Discounted admission tickets can be purchased on-site until 11:30am on the day of the run.



Why can’t the tickets be used after 11:30am on race day?

My family doesn’t want to wake up early to come with me for my race, but we would like to spend the afternoon at the Zoo.
The admission discount has been provided for many years to allow friends and family of ZooRun participants to watch their loved ones participate in and finish the race. After the race, we encourage all run participants to leisurely spend the rest of the day with friends and family at the Zoo. The Toronto Zoo is a big place and we ask our guests to plan on spending a full day at the Zoo to get all there is to experience.
Not only did we embarrass Marky Mark, we let down the Funky Bunch.

i'm planning on buying an annual family membership and bringing my niece along with my kids. Does anyone know if they check IDs? I called and they say that the kids have to be in the same household.

They check ID of the adults on the membership, but they do not for the kids. I've taken friends' kids into the zoo many times

so they won't question even if they don't look like my niece doesn't look like my kid? haha.

To be clear, the membership is only issued to the two adults and the kids are not named?

Anecdotally, yes, I've been able to go in with kids that look nothing like me... who's to say they aren't adopted kids, right?
Only the adults are named on the membership card. They'll ask for a piece of government id to validate when you enter.

Don't forget to buy a parking pass as well. I think it's still $50 for the year. You'll make up that cost in 5 trips since it's $12 each time.

I wouldn't recommend going during the run if you don't have to (of course you'll miss out on the 50%)
We've done the zoo run the past few years and have learned a few things:

  1. Parking is full, very early on. There's prob at least 4k+ runners all starting between 8-10 and quite a few runners stay. We were pleasantly surprised last year when we got there for the 5k around 9ish that we didn't have to park on the grass in previous years. We actually made it into the paved parking lot! This is something to keep in mind if people have mobility issues. Plus you have inconsiderate people who park in the driveways and aisles (a la pre-xmas/boxing day at the malls) simply because they can't be bothered to find an actual spot. This makes parking even more interesting.
  2. The run itself winds all through the zoo, including areas for regular visitors. Some areas are simply inaccessible until after the race is over. Other areas you'll need to follow course marshalls/volunteers instructions to cross a path or you just have to wait for a gap and cross yourself, frogger-style.

Another cheap way to get into the zoo is to look for discounts through sites like Groupon. 30% off is pretty common. Not just on day pass, but on annual memberships as well. Also, October is typically member appreciation month. Each named zoo member can bring a guest into the zoo for free; 1 free guest per member per day. IMO, spring and fall are the best times to go to the zoo anyway. When the weather is cooler, the animals come out from hiding compare to hot, sunny days when they like to just lie in the shade.
