DescriptionJoin us Saturday, May 15, 2021 for Run to the Shrine, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s annual fundraiser walk/run. This 4-mile casual run/walk winds through the Zoo with giraffe, lions and elephants along the way. Participants will reach new heights with this unique picturesque climb to Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun. Enjoy stunning views of Colorado Springs below while ascending nearly 1,000 feet in elevation through a beautiful forest, as you make your way to the top. Run to the Shrine is the ONLY time foot traffic is allowed on Shrine Road. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, participants will start the ascent at their leisure, and there will be no official timing services for 2021.

The race is a great route for competitive athletes, weekend warriors, casual walkers and families of all ages. Jogging strollers with tethers and hand brakes are welcome!

Run to the Shrine registration includes Zoo admission for the evening and a commemorative performance T-shirt featuring our animal mascot. (T-shirt sizes are available while supplies last. Register soon to get your preferred size.) All proceeds help feed and care for Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's animals. Since the Zoo does not receive any tax support, community fundraisers like Run to the Shrine help keep the zoo “running.”

To register and get all the details, visit www.cmzoo.org/run. Registration is open now! Military and Zoo member discounts are available.
