Had a Nice 5k walk up on Tramway walking path. Wore last years T-shirt and saw others doing it as well. Glad to Donate for the Animals and those Helping them. Keep taking Good care of Them! See You Next Year :)

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.

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.

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!

Has been fun for both 2020 and 2021

Probably the best of the virtuals I’ve done over the past year. About 10, and not just ones based I. ABQ. Most complete set of results and very easy to submit results. For 2020 did the actual course. This year just around my neighborhood.

Run for the Zoo 2021

I have participated in the Albuquerque Run for the Zoo the past two years (virtually). I would recommend keeping an on-line or virtual option available for people like me who hate to deal with crowds of people. I enjoyed the past two years as a participant. I probably will not participate if it is not available to do it on your own. I signed up for the full marathon. I am a walker and I logged 38.5 miles during the 8 days of the Run for the Zoo this year.

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?

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!

5k walk down Spain Blvd on Friday

3 of us walked Tramway to Wyoming for our 5k WALK FOR THE ZOO last Friday. Nice day overall, gentle downward slope. We'll do this walk again. Glad to help the ABQ BioPark/ Zoo by walking!
