Run Wild for Autism 2020 is now VIRTUAL!

10th Annual 5K and 1 mile Fun Run & Walk

All proceeds benefit Pathfinders for Autism!

Sunday, September 27, 2020

Location: ANYWHERE!



Due to the current pandemic of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to transition our 10th annual event to a virtual walk/run*. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our participants. While we will not all be walking or running together, we hope you will join us on Sunday, September 27, to walk or run from wherever you are.

All registered participants will have access to the Zoo to enjoy with your family, while practicing social distancing and adhering to Zoo protocols, of course! PFA Staff will still be available on September 27th at the Zoo from 10 am-noon to greet you, thank you and celebrate your success. More details to follow and Zoo restrictions are subject to change.

*If you have already registered, you will be receiving an email with options to switch to the virtual race or transfer to 2021. In addition, you will be asked if you plan to use your Zoo passes or would like to donate those back. Zoo passes will be good for September 27th or any other date in 2020, Zoo restrictions permitting. 



Become an event sponsor and promote your business to hundreds of attendees while supporting a great cause.

Get your company to put together a corporate team and receive 10 race entries – includes chip timing, T-shirts, Zoo admission, and giveaways (additional race entries and sponsorship opportunities available based on team fundraising.)






The most important component to Run Wild for Autism is our families and partners coming together to raise funds that help us continue to serve the autism community. Your dollars allow the PFA staff to offer resources, training- both in person and virtual, and recreation events. It is because of YOU that we have been and will continue to serve our families. Thank you!

Please wear a face covering upon arrival, and maintain 6ft of space between other people waiting in line.  All race packets will travel to each packet pickup location.
