Run to the Shrine

May 20, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

For all the details, visit

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 4-mile course on Saturday, May 20, 2017, and all proceeds benefit Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

The 4-mile (~6.4 K) run/walk course is chip timed, and it winds 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 $19.75 value!), a performance T-shirt featuring Yazhi, our Rocky Mountain goat (limited quantities of women’s sizes available – register early), 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.”

Special thanks to our sponsors: Children’s Hospital Colorado; Kaiser Permanente Colorado and Navy Federal Credit Union
