Celebrating 46 Years!
10K Run│5K Run/Walk│Kids’ Course
Sunday, June 2, 2024


For more than four decades, runners of all levels and abilities have supported Lincoln Park Zoo with Run for the Zoo, now in its 46th year! Run for the Zoo makes it easy for anyone—from toddlers to elite athletes—to help support their favorite species at the zoo and save them in the wild.

Ambitious athletes can compete in the chip-timed 5K and 10K courses, which are U.S.A. Track & Field-certified. Families can enjoy a fun run or walk that accommodates every member of their group. And younger participants can take on the Kids’ Course, a fun obstacle course built to get children running, climbing, and crawling! The race route winds in and around the zoo, allowing for beautiful views of Chicago’s skyline, Lake Michigan, protected natural areas, zoo animals, and maybe even a few roaring spectators.
