SeaWorld just announced a brand new fun run! Coming to SeaWorld Orlando, 2020 will the inaugural year for the SeaWorld Rescue Run races. They’re calling it a “fun run” because it’s only three miles – I’m not sure why they didn’t add the extra tenth of a mile to make it a 5k. SeaWorld’s Rescue Run will benefit the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund on Saturday, January 25, 2020.
About SeaWorld Orlando 3-Mile Fun Run | Rescue Run
Just last week, Universal Studios Orlando announced their inaugural race weekend and now SeaWorld is joining the fun. Runners love to turn these events into vacations. Run Disney has been doing it for years and it’s been quite the money-maker for Disney.
Spend time with friends and family as you run, skip, jog, or stroll through SeaWorld’s Rescue Run! This inaugural event benefitting the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund takes place on Saturday, January 25, 2020. Enjoy the relaxing ambiance of the park’s picturesque pathways and catch a glimpse of SeaWorld’s animals before you cross the finish line at Shamu® Stadium. There’s even an exclusive Killer Whale Show at the conclusion of the event.
SeaWorld’s Rescue Run also features a fun packed Kids Run for participants ages 7 and under so it’s sure to be a hit with the entire family. SeaWorld Rescue themed awards, medals for all participants, and plenty of surprises along the way, this is certain to be a memorable day for racers of all ages. Your exclusive Killer Whale Show, for all participants and a limited number of spectators, is the perfect way to wrap up your race. Race participants and guests can then stay and play following the event with a special day-of ticket offer.
This family-friendly fun run benefits the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. Since its inception in 2003, the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund has provided well over $17 million in grants to over 1,200 organizations – from global organizations to grassroots groups.
This event will benefit the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund. EVERY SINGLE PENNY goes toward these conservation projects!
