    For more than four decades, runners of all levels and abilities have been leaping into action with Lincoln Park Zoo’s annual Run for the Zoo. Now in its 44th year, the race is back and better than ever!

    Ambitious athletes can compete in the chip-timed 5K and 10K courses, which are both U.S.A. Track & Field-certified. Families can enjoy a fun run or walk that accommodates every member of their group. And younger participants can take on the Kids' Course, a fun obstacle course built to have children running, climbing, and crawling! The race route winds in and around the zoo, allowing for beautiful views of Chicago’s skyline, Lake Michigan, protected natural areas, zoo animals, and maybe even a few roaring spectators.
