Zoo Run Run

Glide past lemus and ravens. Bound past Nigerian dwarf goats. Wade past The Swamp. Be inspired by rescured white pelicans. Dip past The Living Coast. Soar by the condors and bald eagles. Thunder by bison. Gallop past giraffes, zebras, and camels. Encounter endangered black rhinos and pygmy hippos. Marvel at the Big Cats- lions, tigers, and snow leopards. Join us September 10, 2017, for the return of the Brookfield ZooRunRun – with courses entirely within the world renowned Brookfield Zoo! Each year more species lose their race for survival and disappear from the wild. But it is a race we can win, and YOU CAN HELP! The Chicago Zoological Society Animal Care and Conservation Fund is dedicated to making a difference for these species across the globe and with each race entry, we will raise both awareness and funds for this great cause. Run individually, with your friends or better yet – team up and race against other family members, teammates or colleagues. It will be a race you will always remember and the most serious fun you’ll ever have! Each participant will receive a self wicking t-shirt, a bib containing your timing chip as well as snacks and beverages! And that’s not all…Bring your family and friends in FOR FREE to help cheer you on and enjoy the zoo. New this year a 1-Miles Kids Run (ages 4-13). Start Time: The 5k chip-timed race will kick off promptly at 8:30am on Sunday, September 10th and the 5k Fun Walk will follow immediately. The 1-Mile Kids Dash will start at 9:30am Packet Pickup: Early packet pick-up will be available at North Parking on Friday September 8th from 12pm – 7pm and Saturday, September 9th from 10am – 6pm.
