Run for the Wild

About Run for the Wild

Each year, the WCS Run for the Wild raises awareness of the threats facing wildlife while fundraising to help WCS's conservation work at the Bronx Zoo and around the world.

This year our 5k race will be virtual instead of at the Bronx Zoo. Together we'll Run for the Wild in our neighborhoods, on local trails and tracks, or even on treadmills at home.

Runners, walkers, and wildlife supporters are invited to participate and/or support a participant.
