Run for the Animals

Join us for a fun challenge in a beautiful setting.  This 5K Trail Run/Walk covers scenic high desert trails and portions of Animal Ark's Wildlife Sanctuary.  By participating, you will have fun, work hard and, best of all, help the animals - every entry fee from the Ark Stampede goes to support the spectacular animals that call Animal Ark home.  Animal Ark has provided a safe haven for injured, abandoned and otherwise non-releasable wildlife since 1981. Its mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through wildlife education. Learn more at

NEW: Sponsors have graciously awarded Animal Ark funding as prizes for schools who participate in this year's Animal Ark Stampede!  The three schools with the highest participation receive $500, $300 and $200 respectively.  Contact Alex at for more information on this program!
