VIRTUAL RUN FOR THE ZOO

VIRTUAL RUN FOR THE ZOO Race Description


 

 

Run for the Zoo is roaring back in 2021 with our second virtual event! You helped us raise over $100,000 last year to further our mission of “making the exceptional possible at the ABQ BioPark.” This year, our goal is to raise $125,000, and you can help us by registering for one of our races, including our brand-new Virtual Marathon!

Join us for the Virtual Run for the Zoo anytime the weekend of May 2-9, 2021. Register for the 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon. Walk, run, bike, or skate! Indoors or outdoors, your race is your choice! This year, we have added downloadable bibs and finisher certificates, as well as optional medals! For the first time ever, you'll also get to choose the color of your Race Shirt!

Please note that shirts are non-refundable and we are unable to provide exchanges for either size or color. We regret that we are unable to ship internationally.

Just like the lion, whose roar is a symbol of strength, your support is our strength, and you are part of our Pride. Together, we will “Roar On” and create a future that is safe and strong.

Very Nice Day

Was going to do my 5K on Sunday, but was very windy. Got down to zoo about 6:30 a.m. Monday, May 18. Did a very close approximation of real course. About a minute faster than last year, which 1st in age group then. Hopefully same this year. 70-74.

10K Virtual Run for the Zoo

Good race! The course I wanted, on the day I wanted to run, and perfect pre & post race accommodations. My pace appears to be off; is the race site going by 6.2 for the 10K or 6 miles?

Run for the Zoo STILL going strong

I'm so glad this was organized. I did the very first Run for the Zoo; and with the exception of some off years, I've done every year since. Great "virtual" event!

Special race for a special time

So glad I was able to participate in this special run. :-) I ran a familiar 10K route this morning before it got hot or windy. I look forward to participating in the future. Stay safe and healthy.

Great Morning! It would be nice if the actual race could utilize some of these back trails in the shade from Tingley to Montano off the pavement. Maybe too much traffic would mess up the trail. Just a thought! A perfect morning to get out and move! Enjoyed it very much!
