36th Annual Run for the Zoo

Welcome to the 36th Annual Run for the Zoo, presented by Waterstone Mortgage and organized by the New Mexico BioPark Society.
We’re excited for this year’s event and enthusiastic to highlight the 2023 opening of the Zoo’s new Asia expansion as the inspiration for this year’s artwork.
From a Half Marathon to a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk, and a couple of distances in between, we have an event for all ages and fitness levels.
Join us on Sunday, May 7, 2023, for a fun time raising valuable funds for your ABQ BioPark Zoo!
