Guests of all ages can join the fun during the 3.1 mile run and walk through the beautiful Cincinnati Zoo. The course will feature the Zoo’s unique gardens and exotic animal exhibits, providing scenery unlike any other venue in town.

The 2017 Cheetah Run will feature a challenging course and a performance T-shirt to all pre-registered runners and chip-timing at the start and finish line that give real-time, accurate race results. The race will start and finish in the Safari Camp Parking Lot.


Run your tail off and share your #CheetahRun5K race-day photos with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #CheetahRun5K. If you have a cheetah tail from the 2014 race, make sure you bring it! There will also be a cheetah headband available while supplies last!

After the race, children 12 and under can participate in a FREE Cheetah “Cub” Fun Run. As a special prize all participants in the Cheetah Cub Fun Run will receive a ribbon when they cross the finish line.
