Wild Run For Conservation

Wild Run For Conservation is back up and running and Color Right Now is running along with you as a key supplier of racing bibs, banners, signs, flags, tear drop flags, course markers & backdrops for Calgary marathons as well as marathons all over Alberta.

The Wild Run, formerly the ‘Gorilla Run’, now in its 18th year, was established in 2004 to raise funds for Mountain Gorillas and other endangered species. Over the last 15 years the race/relay has donated over $100,000 dollars to wild animals threatened with extinction and Run Calgary is pledging to continue our fundraising efforts for conservation.

Please join us, as we run in and around the zoo on Sunday September 25, 2022 at 8 AM for the annual ‘Race For Conservation’! You can choose to run the 10 mile course solo, or round up your crew and race the course as a relay (2-4 members). The in-person event starts and finishes on St. Patrick’s Island and consists of 4 legs, all of which transition on ‘The Rise’, our very own party site for The Wild Run. Only 1 leg runs through the zoo, but all participants have access to the zoo on race day with your registration.
