The VIRTUAL Zoo 'Run Run' 5K & Kids 'Ele-FUN-Run'

The ZOO RUN 2020 has gone VIRTUAL!

The Annual Zoo Run/Walk event is going VIRTUAL for 2020!  While we will miss seeing you in person, we still want to give you a great race experience. You will have from the morning of Wednesday, July 15th, to the end of the day on Saturday, July 25th, to complete your event.  Do it any way you want - on a treadmill, walking the dog, your usual jogging route, whatever works.  We simply want to encourage you to get out and get active.  If you choose to turn in a time, great!  But it won't be required.   

We have redesigned a NEW LOGO specifically for this event.  You will still receive your great race shirt, a custom medal and a bib. It is our goal to have these to you before July 15th so that you can do a great post race selfie wearing them. 

.Anyone that has signed up prior to June 27th will have their packet mailed free of charge.  

Thank you for understanding the changes that we have been forced to make this year, and we'll look forward to seeing you in 2021!  

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the 2021 Zoo Run event as soon as it is set (mid-May of 2021). We look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience and we can't wait to see you!

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own on your terms and you still get the great custom medal and race shirt to add to your collection!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.  After our costs are recovered, we will give the remainder to our partner, Garrett Recovery.  Since Covid-19, they have extended their hours and increased their client base by 400%.  While their staffing is funded by a grant, the remainder of their operating costs are by donation only.  While everyone is faced with a global pandemic, the Hilltop in west Columbus has been and will continue to face the drug epidemic, food insecurity and generational poverty.
