Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo!

Make tracks for wildlife in the 2016 WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo. This year's 5K run/walk takes place on Saturday, April 30.

There's still time to register, raise awareness and funds, and to run! Register here!

There are two start times, one for runners at 8:00 a.m., and a second for the zoo's Family Fun Run/Walk at 8:45 a.m.

The Wildlife Conservation Society protects animals and their habitats all over the globe. Run on behalf of your favorite animal and help them to continue their critical work!

Registration fee:
$45 for adults
$35 for children (3-15)

All adults and senior registrants must also raise at least $30 before the run in order to participate on April 30! The minimum fundraising requirement is waived for children.

All registered adults and seniors who meet the $30 fundraising requirement will receive:

Entrance to either the 5K or Family Fun Run
Complimentary Bronx Zoo general admission and parking for the entire day

A commemorative WCS Run for the Wild t-shirt
You'll also be eligible for a host of prizes based on your personal fundraising success: You can win a cheetah plush, tote bag, cooling towel, and a VIP brunch. Sign up and get a jump start on your fundraising now.
