Thank you for your continued support of Pathfinders for Autism. Sadly, after monitoring the weather closely and consulting with our Zoo partners and Charm City Run, we have made the decision to cancel our 13th Annual Run Wild for Autism in Baltimore.  Because of the volume of rain on Saturday into Saturday evening and continued rain through Sunday morning,  the race activities, and the race itself would be difficult to execute. We are unable to postpone or reschedule the event. We thank you for your understanding. Please read below to see the multiple options that we have available for you and your families to still enjoy the Run Wild experience and support our mission, including access to the Zoo on November 11 (see item 6 below).

What happens next?

Please see the opportunities listed below to ensure we still provide you and your family with the best possible experience.

  1. If you have not picked up your race packet you can still do so on Saturday at Charm City Run in Timonium from 10 am-Noon. You can pick up your shirts at this time and bibs if you wish to complete the virtual option (see below).
  2. You have the option to run your race virtually if you would like. There are no steps you need to switch to virtual, and you can report your results anytime from September 22nd to October 1 by clicking “Submit Your Results” on the results page here.

This is for REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS ONLY. If you wish to bring a guest with you on that day, they can pay for their Zoo pass and join you inside. The Zoo Pass day is set for Saturday, November 11. PFA Staff will be in the Pavilion outside the Main Gate from 10 am until Noon with a list of registered participants and zoo wristbands for access to the zoo. Zoo passes are good for NOVEMBER 11 ONLY. You must arrive by NOON to receive your passes and enjoy the Zoo.

Again, we are disappointed that the weather will not cooperate with our plans for Sunday but know that your safety is the most important thing to us. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this process. If you have any questions, contact Katie Ramirez at
