FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Confluence Running Events Presents: Loop the Lemur at the Ross Park Zoo

Confluence Running Events is excited to host the annual "Loop the Lemur at the Ross Park Zoo" on May 18, 2024, in Binghamton, NY. This unique event challenges participants to "loop" the lemurs by running or walking as many times as possible around a .8 mile loop within the Ross Park Zoo during designated 6-hour, 2-hour, or 1-hour intervals. The event also features a team mileage competition and a special kids fun run, ensuring a day full of activities for all ages. Celebrations continue post-race with the "Tail"-Gate Party, featuring live music by Dr. Dana & the Jam Dept and delicious food sponsored by Sweetay’s LLC. A portion of the proceeds will support the zoo's efforts to protect endangered species like the black-and-white ruffed lemurs, Menabe and Rizzo, enhancing both conservation and community wellness.
