VIRTUAL RUN FOR THE ZOO Race Description

Run for the Zoo logo artwork tagline

 

The New Mexico BioPark Society has taken pride in achieving their mission of “Making the exceptional possible at the ABQ BioPark” through membership, donations, and fundraising events like Run for the Zoo.

The cancellation of Run for the Zoo 2020 created a fundraising deficit of $180,000, which directly impacts the discretionary funds available to the BioPark director for immediate needs and long-term action plans.

Beyond that, the cancellation created a void in the running community, and our hearts were warmed by the many Run for the Zoo fans who wrote us and said they would miss this year’s event.

Runners and walkers, we miss you too! And while we can’t run together in person just yet, we can still join in support of Run for the Zoo and our beloved BioPark through the VIRTUAL Run for the Zoo!

You’re invited to join us anytime May 17 through 24 to run or walk, indoors or outdoors, bike or skateboard, for a half marathon, 10K, 5K or 1 Mile “your way”.

With a whole week to complete the event, we ask that you please adhere to all CDC recommended social distancing guidelines, maintain a safe distance from others and avoid trails and walking paths during peak times.

There are no prizes, medals, or discounts this year and 100% of your registration fees will go back to support the ABQ BioPark. 

All races are $10! Upgrade your registration to $25 and receive the official Virtual Run for the Zoo t-shirt! (Please note: Shirts will be shipped to you directly, but delivery times may take longer than normal due to COVID-19. Thanks for your patience.)

 

 

Run for the Zoo is a 35-year-old tradition and we will be back! On behalf of the New Mexico BioPark Society and the Run for the Zoo committee, we look forward to seeing your smiling faces on race day in future years. Until then, we can stay six feet apart, but still go miles together.

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.
