All the latest updates and news from the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo, one of Bermuda's leading visitor attractions!
This past Sunday, 11th March, over 450 fundraisers biked, ran, walked, paddle boarded and rowed in the Bermuda Zoological Society’s [BZS] annual Zoom Around the Sound race.
The popular 7.2 mile race saw men, women, children make their way around the circular route on both land and sea. All funds raised from the event went towards the BZS education programmes.

The event kicked off with a warm up at 8:15am by Yves Paul. Once all the participants were pumped up and ready to go, Dr. Ian Walker, Principle Curator of the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, and MC of the day’s events, sent the cyclists, then runners, then walkers on their way.
Once again, the race also saw paddle boarders make their way around the sound, but this year the event also saw the inclusion of two teams of rowers in their gigs.

“After days of dreary weather, we were very happy that Sunday cleared up for all of our participants, especially with the day starting with a gorgeous sunrise,” said Joanne Chisnall, Volunteer Coordinator at BZS and the coordinator of the event.
“The event was great success and we were especially happy to welcome the rowers in their gigs this year. A special thanks to Butterfield and Vallis and Ben & Jerry’s for sponsoring the event.
“We’d also like to thank the Bermuda Regiment for providing RPs to manage traffic at the event. Finally, thanks to all the participants of the event, it wouldn’t be a success without their support!”
