This year is all about the Heart of the Zoo! We're gearing up to begin construction on a large portion of the Zoo that will completely change our giraffe and rhino spaces! 

Help us raise awareness about the importance of  pollinators. Everyone who runs or walks will receive a Run Wild t-shirt. This year, instead of medals all adult participants will get either BEE, BUTTERFLY, or BAT socks! *Runners who sign up after September 1 will not get to choose which sock design they receive. Kids who sign up for the Wild Child fun run will get a finisher medal instead of socks.

You can sign up for Run Wild as a 5k or 10k distance. Join us at the zoo on Sunday, September 25 for our first in-person event since the pandemic started. 

10k race will start at 8am. The 5k race will start at 8:30am. The kid's 1-mile fun run begins at 10:00am.

Race Packets may be picked up before the race at the Zoo in our Guest Services building from 9:30am - 4pm starting Friday, September 16. Race Packets may also be picked up at the following locations:

Fleet Feet Sun Prairie
2828 Prairie Lakes Drive
Sun Prairie, WI 53590


Fleet Feet Madison
8440 Old Sauk Rd
Middleton, WI 53562

All dollars raised at this year's race will directly support Henry Vilas Zoo and our wildlife conservation partner, AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction, which focuses the collective expertise within AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums and leverages their massive audiences to save species. The SAFE Monarch Network coordinates activities to reduce threats to monarchs while creating more pollinator habitat in urban, suburban, and rural regions.
