By | Accessibility | No Comments

Recreational, push rim & motorized wheelchairs (with a speed limit of no more than 5 km/hour) are allowed on course. Handcycles will not be permitted on course.

Please note that this course has a lot of hills, so those participating with an assistive device may require a support person.

The post-race area (Savanna Picnic Site) is a grass field with areas of uneven terrain. Your Toronto Zoo strives to provide experiences and events that are accessible to all guests. Accommodation requests by guests are welcome and we will make every effort to provide optimal support for the needs of guests with disabilities.
