United Run for the Zoo, now celebrating its 38th year, is an annual highlight of the Chicago running calendar. Benefiting Lincoln Park Zoo, it helps keep the zoo free and open 365 days a year.
The race has also sold out the past three years—so register early to guarantee your spot!
Based on participant feedback, we’ve made several improvements for the 2016 edition. Highlights include:
- New start times for the 5K and 10K
- New start line procedure with pace signs and divisions for an improved start experience
- New location for gear check for an easier, more convenient experience
- New and improved post-race celebration
