The Oasis Zoo Run, which, you guessed it, is held at the Toronto Zoo, was a hit among runners on Saturday.

Participants tested their fitness and creativity as some dressed up in their best costumes for the animal-themed event. The sold-out Canada Running Series event featured a 5K and 10K as well as a cubs run. The challenging but unique course that weaves through various areas of the zoo was held on a hot morning in southern Ontario as temperatures eventually topped 30 C, though well after the race had concluded.

Check out some of the best costumes, from koalas to flamingos to giraffes, as captured by Canada Running Series, a circuit of races in Quebec, British Columbia and Quebec. (The CRS notably puts on the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.)

    Attended the Toronto zoo race ,was really disappointed by the lack of runner’s etiquette. Yes it’s a fun run but people
    not staying to the right except to pass and stopping mid course with no warning was dangerous. Lots of sloping hills that could blow a knee in a second, perhaps next time a review of safety and etiquette and not running/walking 5-6 abreast would be better. Just posting or showing the proper etiquette along the route and ahead of time might help.
