ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The New Mexico BioPark Society’s 35th annual Run for the Zoo is back in-person May 1 after two years of being virtual. Runners can lace up their shoes and run through neighborhoods, the Bosque, and the zoo. They can pick from a 1-mile fun run up to timed half marathons and even a virtual full marathon.

The event raises money for the zoo, Aquarium, Botanical Garden, and Tingley Beach. Proceeds will also be used for conservation and education efforts in the community.
