Run with Us!

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo invites world class runners and families alike to Run to the Shrine on Saturday, May 16, 2015. Both the 5K and the 10K options curve through the Zoo and some of the most stunning mountain scenery this side of the Rockies. The races conclude with a party at The Lodge at Moose Lake!

A great opportunity for competitive racers, casual walkers, as well as families and children eager to show their enthusiasm for the Zoo, Run to the Shrine offers the coveted opportunity to traverse Shrine Road via foot, the only time of the year when foot traffic is allowed. Learn more about training for Run to the Shrine.
