September 20 - October 4


We have made the decision to hold our RUN WILD 5/10k race virtually this year. RUN WILD is one of our most successful events of the year and we always look forward to seeing everyone come out to support the Zoo, and we hope that you will consider racing with us virtually this year!

Sign up for the 5k or 10k distance and run your course any time between September 20 and October 4. Run near your home or on a treadmill – anything goes this year! Maybe you want to kayak your 5k or ride a unicycle this year. 2020 is the year we all get to be a little more creative! The race routes will be posted on our website and we are partnering with RaceJoy to make it easy for you to track your distance no matter where you run or walk.

This year we want you to help us raise awareness about some of our most endangered animals – red pandas, orangutans, and Amur tigers. Choose who you want to represent while you run! Every registered runner will receive a T-shirt and a run buff representing the animal you pick.

We would like to thank everyone for the support, it means so much to everyone here at Henry Vilas Zoo!
