Run for the Zoo

We are looking volunteers to help out with Lincoln Park Zoo's Run for the Zoo on Sunday, June 5! This is the first in-person Run for the Zoo since 2019. We will have thousands of race participants running either a 5k or 10k to support the zoo and the 800+ animals that live here. We are looking for energetic folks to volunteer as Course Marshals. Volunteer Course Marshals are placed along the run/walk routes to direct (and encourage runners). You'll help to make sure the runners are being safe and running the correct way along the course by directing them and holding up signs. Course Marshals must be energetic! All course marshal and race day volunteers will receive a Run for the Zoo t-shirt to keep, coffee and light refreshments.

Volunteers for this role must be 18+ although other roles can accept 14+ volunteers that are accompanied by an adult. Please click the link below to sign up for Course Marshal. You will see other roles available for sign up as well.
