Thanks to all the runners who participated in this year’s United Run for the Zoo. Your support helps keep Chicago’s landmark zoo open and free 365 days a year! Thanks also to United Airlines and the event’s other sponsors for their generous support. Beautiful, sunny weather welcomed nearly 6,000 participants for this highlight of the Chicago running calendar. The USATF-certified, chip-timed 10K and 5K races were sell-outs, as were the 5K fun walk and Safari Stampede, a mini obstacle course for kids ages 3–8. Runners followed scenic courses along the lakefront and through Lincoln Park and the main zoo grounds. Each 5K and 10K participant received a zoo-themed tech-top shirt, and all enjoyed a fun post-race party featuring sponsor giveaways and beer and pizza courtesy of Lagunitas Brewing Company and Aurelio’s Pizza.
