Run to the Shrine

Presented by Cheyenne Mountain Zoo at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

The annual Run to the Shrine fundraiser is the only day of the year foot traffic is allowed on the breathtaking road to the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun. This year’s event will feature a new four-mile course on Saturday, May 20, 2017, and all proceeds benefit Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

The new four-mile run/walk course is chip timed, winding through the Zoo with mountain goats, giraffes and elephants lining the course. It is a great route for competitive athletes, weekend warriors, casual walkers and families of all ages. Jogging strollers with safety equipment are welcome!

Run to the Shrine registration includes Zoo admission for the rest of the day (up to $19 value!), a commemorative performance T-shirt featuring Yazhi, our Rocky Mountain goat and a post-event party at the Zoo’s Lodge at Moose Lake. All proceeds help feed and care for Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s 750 animals. Since the Zoo doesn’t receive any tax support, community events like Run to the Shrine help keep the zoo “running.”
