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.
Share your rhino love and show that you Run for the Wild with these limited edition Run for the Wild rhino-themed items. Prices include shipping. Available while supplies last.
Check back here for some helpful tips from our Bronx Zoo fitness experts (ie keepers) on how animals get physically fit as well as advice to help you get ready for your run. We'll be sharing suggestions on selecting your course, staying healthy and training for the big day.
