Wed July 15 - Sun September 6, 2020

Additional VIRTUAL RACE information can be found at


Join us starting July 15th and ending on September 6th for our VIRTUAL Brookfield Zoo Run. While you might not be running past rhinos, zebras or big cats this year, you can still help support the Chicago Zoological Society Animal Care and Conservation Fund at home while you run past the squirrels, chipmunks and birds.

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.


How a virtual run works:

- Registration will open July 15th.

- Once your registration is complete, your running packet will be mailed to you.

- When you get your packet, put on your bib on and go out for a run or walk.

- After your run or walk, go back online to our website and submit your time.


All 5k registrations will include a numbered bib and a Next Level moisture wicking t-shirt

All 1 mile registrations (kids only) will include a numbered bib and a cotton t-shirt
