Run to the Shrine

Run like an animal during Run to the Shrine, the annual Cheyenne Mountain Zoo tradition! These are the only days of the year that guests are allowed to travel the breathtaking road to the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun by foot.
The course offers amazing views of Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods as you traverse four miles and ascend 1,000 feet up to the Shrine and back down to the Zoo. In addition, Run to the Shrine is an important fundraiser for the Zoo.

If you’re looking for more occasions for getting your kids active & outdoors, check out our blog on the 40 Best Parks & Playgrounds in Denver! We’re fortunate to live in a city that is host to some extremely unique parks and playgrounds. Kids will love exploring & playing on the interesting features and adults will love seeing their kids in their natural element! What better way to get your kids some exercise than a fun, free day at the park?
