Event Info −
In-Person Event: September 25
Virtual Race Window: September 25 - October 4
Each year we feature a different animal at The Calgary Zoo so we can sneak in a little animal education to this fun family-friendly event. To date, we have featured, learned about and contributed to the habitat conservation of mountain gorillas (2004-2017) pandas (2018) burrowing owls (2019) lemurs (2020) Vancouver Island Marmots (2021) and in 2022 we will be learning about and raising funds for the Whooping Crane.

The in-person event starts and finishes on St. Patrick Island and consists of 4 legs, all of which transition on The Rise, our very own party site for The Wild Run. Only 1 leg runs through the zoo but all participants have access to the zoo with your registration.
