The 2017 On Zoo Run - Zurich

1,000 runners. Lions and tigers and bears (and giraffes, elephants, lizards and many others). One incredible evening. The 2017 On Zoo Run gave new meaning to the term fun-run...

A few weeks ago, 1,000 humans were set loose in Zurich zoo at the annual On Zoo Run. Raising over 25,000CHF to be donated for the preservation of giraffes (and their friends) in a Kenyan wildlife sanctuary, this third On Zoo Run saw the biggest turnout to date.


On display were such species as Olympic two-time medalist and On champion Nicola Spirig, On co-founder Caspar Coppetti, and all kinds of other homo-sapiens happily running through the zoo after hours.


Watch the video of the run above or below, see just a few of the images captured on the night – with plenty more shared online through the hashtag #OnZooRun2017
