Welcome to the 34th annual Run for the Zoo…

and Walk with us Too, presented by Bank of America and the New Mexico BioPark Society! The first Run for the Zoo in 1985 attracted just 800 participants; since then, it has grown to such popularity that we now must cap the event at 12,000 participants. Your participation in Run for the Zoo is vital to the work we at the BioPark Society do. The funds raised through this event go back to support the city’s most treasured facilities, YOUR Zoo, Aquarium, Botanic Garden and Tingley Beach.

We look forward to hosting you next year on
