Run for the Zoo
As one of the oldest short-distance races in Chicago, the event takes place largely on and around the beautiful grounds of Lincoln Park Zoo. The Run for the Zoo course takes racers on a journey winding past winged creatures, gallop alongside gazelles, and race next to rhinos. After you complete the race, join all participants for a post-race celebration on the zoo’s Main Mall. Every guests participation in Lincoln Park Zoo’s public events helps to conserve wildlife and keep the gates open and free 365 days a year.
Zoo members receive a $5 discount on all events if registering before the race!
