ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Runners enjoyed beautiful weather for the 31st annual Make Tracks at the Zoo event.
The day started with a 5K, followed by a mile, half mile and quarter mile runs.
The shorter runs are part of the event to make sure that kids of all ages get a chance to run.
The whole point of the day was to teach kids why it is important for people and zoo animals to take care of their bodies and be healthy.
All of the proceeds from the event go towards the conservation work of the St. Louis Zoo and around the world.
