How does the Virtual Run work?

Unlike other races, your virtual Run for the Zoo can be completed any time May 2-9. As you run or walk, outside or on a treadmill, bike or skateboard, please observe all CDC recommended social distancing guidelines. Virtual Run for the Zoo is great for all ages! Run the race at your own pace!  

How do I track my time/pace?

Virtual Run for the Zoo is completely on the honor system. You are not required to prove your participation, but we encourage you to upload photos or a video of you and your family's run or a shot of your fitness watch, step counter, or anything else that shows how far you’ve come!

Can I run from another state?
