Description

Today, nearly 3,600 runners and walkers galloped, scurried, and trotted alongside the animals at Brookfield Zoo's Zoo Run Run for the Conservation Fund, a fundraiser that supports threatened species and their environments. Zoo Run Run featured a choice between a 5K chip-timed run and a 5K fun run/walk. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Chicago Zoological Society's Conservation Fund, which supports research and education efforts around the world and at Brookfield Zoo, including the Center for the Science of Animal Welfare and the Center for Conservation Leadership.

The course took participants under a forest canopy of 100-year-old oak trees and continued past the Andean condors near The Living Coast; the bison at Great Bear Wilderness; the giraffes, zebras, and camels along 31st Street; the kangaroos at Australia House; and the endangered black rhinos outside Pachyderm House. The final stretch of the run went past the lions, sloth bears, tigers, and snow leopards.
