The Aquarium of Niagara is looking for runners and walkers to participate in its fourth annual Sea Lion Rescue Run 5K.

The Sea Lion Rescue Run 5K supports the care of the aquarium’s ten rescued sea lions and seals, which have been deemed non-releasable-unable to survive in the wild.

The family-friendly 5K will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2019 on a certified course at the picturesque Whirlpool State Park in Niagara Falls, N.Y. Registration is 7:45 to 8:45 am. Cost: $25 in advance, $30 on race day
Kids 6 and under race for free!

Participants get free, same-day admission to the Aquarium of Niagara where there will be an afterparty featuring live music by Mark Mazur and the Little Big Band, awards ceremony and sea lion show. Race winners will receive awards that were painted by our sea lions!
