This is the 3rd edition of the Six Flags Wild Safari Inv which features a mile plus of running in the Wild Safari as the animals watch from behind the fences.  It also allows the kids a special rate into the amusement park which 3000 runners chose to do last year.  To take a look at the course, watch the Course Tour.
In 2012, Delaware star Julie Machado shattered the girls course record with her 16:53.  Fastest Boy of the day was Brenden Wortner (Dobbs Ferry) who ran 15:44, just 7 secs off the course record of 15:37 by Mike O'Dowd (Colts Neck).
