Cosley Zoo Virtual Run for the Animals 2020

Sat June 6 - Sun June 21

The Cosley Zoo Run for the Animals 5K/10K and Kids' 1/2 Mile events are hosted by the Cosley Foundation to raise funds for the animals at Cosley Zoo as well as exhibit development projects, public programs and conservation projects.

Due to social distancing guidelines related to COVID-19, this year's run will be a virtual race.

Participants are encouraged to adhere to the Chicago Area Runners Association social distancing running guidelines.

Registered runners will have between June 6 and June 21 to complete the run and enter their race time. As a virtual race, there is no official race course. Runners are able to participate using their favorite outdoor 5K, 10K or 1/2 mile run/walk route, or on a treadmill.

All registered runners will be mailed a race shirt. Shirts will be mailed in late June to the address used during race registration.
