How does Virtual Run for the Zoo work?
Virtual Run for the Zoo can be completed anytime during the week of May 2-9. As you run or walk, outside or on a treadmill, please keep your safety and the safety of others in mind and observe all social distancing guidelines. Virtual Run for the Zoo is great for all ages because you can run the race, at your own pace!
Whatever your distance, we will “Roar On” into a better 2021 together!
Why should I sign up?
Run for the Zoo is not only one of the New Mexico BioPark Society’s major fundraisers each year, it is also a beloved community event that attracts thousands of runners annually. The global health crisis has made fundraising more challenging than ever, but our commitment to the ABQ BioPark has never wavered.
Signing up for Virtual Run for the Zoo is a great way to financially support YOUR BioPark in a safe and socially distant way!
How much does it cost?
Virtual Run for the Zoo is only $10 for the race, with optional add-ons available. Donations are accepted and appreciated, but not necessary.
How do I track my time/pace?
Use any GPS, Bluetooth device, or running/walking app to track your results, or take a photo of your treadmill screen!
Can I run from another state or country?
