On Saturday the Friends of the National Zoo are throwing you a 5K. The Fast and The Fierce 5K Sponsored by Aegis Project Controls is a run for some lives, but not yours! On top of just being healthy in general, you are also focusing on the health of some animals in need. You are raising money for zoo conservation projects. And because it’s the zoo animal costumes are ENCOURAGED. If you’re having trouble picking out what to wear we thought we’d help you out.
The Fast and The Fierce 5K Sponsored by Aegis Project Controls is Saturday August 25 at Freedom Plaza. Head over to the zoo after for their Enrichment Day.
Oh you didn’t know flamingos run? Well they run. Snag that costume here!
Don’t be fooled, rhinos are all muscle. You will win with this costume.
Cheetahs can run anywhere from 50-75 mph so this is kind of a no-brainer.
This is for when you want to run adorably.
Never underestimate the intimidation factor of a good 5K. Go with gorilla.
They’ll never see ya coming with this costume!
Slow and steady wins this race!
How else would you seal the deal???
We will also accept an actual tuxedo.
You can never go wrong with a white tank top. Sorry, no cars allowed.
