Is this year’s event in-person?

Zoo Run Relay will be held on Friday, September 10 from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m. and our Kids Run will be held on Saturday, September 11 from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. If you’re unable to join us in-person this year, you can still support by registering for our virtual option.
How will I receive my packet?
Curbside pickup will be available where you can pick up your packet right at the steps of the zoo! Whether you register for our Zoo Run Relay, Kids Run or Virtual Run, packet pickup will be held on Thursday, September 9 from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Please note, shirts and sizes will be guaranteed if registered by Friday, August 27.
What running distance options are available?
With Zoo Run Relay, you have the option of participating in a four (4) person relay team and run a two-mile leg. We also have a four mile and an eight mile single runner option.
How does a virtual Zoo Run work?
Unlike a traditional run, a virtual run can be completed at any time and any place! Complete your run outside in the neighborhood, nearby park, or even on a treadmill. Since you can complete this run at any time, you can go at your own pace! Recording times will be optional if you would like to share your results on social media.
How do I track my time/pace?
Our virtual run will be completed on the honor system. You will not be required to prove your participation or completion of the run, but pictures with family and even selfies as you run are highly encouraged!
Can I run from another state?
Of course! A great thing about going virtual is we can now share our event with anyone outside of our community.
After I complete my run, what’s next?
Share your pictures and your completion time on social media, upload videos of you running and tag us using #SAZooRun
Why should I register?
For over 35 years, runners have come out to support San Antonio Zoo and our conservation efforts with one of our longest running fundraisers, Zoo Run Relay. This year will be even bigger and better than ever! Each registration goes to supporting the zoo’s mission and vision of securing a future for wildlife.
