As one of the oldest short-distance races in Chicago, the 43rd Annual Run for the Zoo USATF Certified course will again take place largely on and around the beautiful grounds of Lincoln Park Zoo. The 2021 Run for the Zoo course will take racers on a journey winding past winged creatures, gallop alongside gazelles, and race next to rhinos. After you complete the race, join all participants for a post-race celebration on the zoo’s Main Mall.

The race often sells out before race day. Enjoy this unique opportunity to register in advance for the 43rd annual Run for the Zoo.
