In honor of International Cheetah Day on December 4th we are teaming up with Virtual Run Events for our second annual Save the Cheetah 1M 5K 10K 13.1 26.2. The cheetah can accelerate from a standing start to over 95 km per hour in 3 seconds. The cheetah top speed is around 120 km per hour – by far the fastest land animal in the world, streets ahead of all other wild cats, and the fastest running animal. This fast speed is limited to very short bursts, however, with cheetahs able to sprint at top speed for around 60 seconds only.
Fun Cheetah Fact
Whilst sprinting cheetahs spend more time in the air than on the ground. They’re the fastest animal on land, but not actually on the ground too much when sprinting! Let’s race like the cheetahs!
20% of each registration for this race will be donated to the CCF.
- Races can be completed anytime between November 1st and December 31, 2021! Even better if its December 4th, International Cheetah Day!
- Complete a 1Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1 or 26.2 — you choose the distance and where and when you want to complete it.
- Great for all ages
- A percentage of race registration fees will be donated to Cheetah Conservation Fund.
You’ll receive a medal upon completion of your event!
Registration Fee: $25 (includes a medal, bib, and shipping)
Medals and bibs will begin shipping out October 15, 2021. After that they will ship out within 2 to 5 days of signing up.

Our virtual Save The Cheetah 5k was so well-received in 2020, that we’re doing it again in 2021!
