Spring Run

Location: Virtual

Date: April 1 - May 30, 2021

Brookfield Zoo’s first-ever Virtual 5K Spring Run/Walk takes you outdoors to enjoy the warm weather and glorious colors of spring. You choose the time and place—take a hike in a forest preserve, jog along a waterfront trail, or stroll through a neighborhood, for example. Or if you enjoy competition, run the full 5K (3.1-miles) and compare your time with other runners. Each runner will receive a numbered bib and commemorative swag included with registration.

Registration opens April 1st!

All race materials will be mailed directly to you.
