The Parklands 5K Walk & Run

Take a beautiful stroll or an invigorating morning run through Beckley Creek Park while supporting The Parklands! Join us for The Parklands 5K Walk & Run on Saturday, June 15, 2019, as we gather together to raise funds for the annual operations and maintenance of this 4,000-acre, donor-supported park system! 

The Parklands 5K Walk & Run will support The Parklands Fund, the annual fund campaign that helps to support maintenance and operations in The Parklands. The Parklands is open 365 days a year, from dawn to dusk, with zero entry fee. It includes over 50 miles of trails for hiking and biking, a mountain bike park, a 19-mile, ADA-certified, multi-use paved trail that spans the length of the park and 20 miles of paddling trail. Thanks to community support, a safe, clean, fun and beautiful experience is provided for the millions of Parklands visitors every year!

T-shirt orders will be available at online registration and all race participants will receive a medal at the finish line (see below)!
