Run to the Shrine

Run to the Shrine

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. The 4-mile run/walk course is chip timed, winding through the Zoo with giraffes, elephants and a rhino lining the course. Enjoy the stunning views of Colorado Springs below while gaining nearly 1,000 feet in elevation as you make your way to the top. It is a great route for competitive athletes, weekend warriors, casual walkers and families of all ages. Jogging strollers with safety equipment are welcome!

$35–$60 – Adults
$25–$50 – Seniors (65+), Youth (12–17)
$15–$30 – Children (3–11)
includes Zoo admission for the rest of the day (up to $24.75 value!), a commemorative performance T-shirt, 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.


Registration not required.
