Join us for the third annual Parklands Walk & Run presented by Enchanting Adventure Travels on Saturday, June 12 as we gather to raise funds for the annual operations and maintenance of this nearly 4,000-acre, visitor-supported park system! We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to hold an in-person event in 2021, putting in place extra protocols to ensure the safety of all participants. Sign up today to join us!

The Parklands 5K Walk & Run presented by Enchanting Adventure Travels supports The Parklands Fund, the annual fund campaign that raises money to support maintenance and operations of The Parklands, which does not receive tax dollars for annual operations. The Parklands is open 365 days a year with zero entry fee. It features over 60 miles of trails for hiking and biking—including a mountain bike park and a 19-mile, ADA-certified, multi-use paved trail that spans the length of the park—and 22 miles of paddling trail along Floyds Fork. Thanks to community support, a safe, clean, fun and beautiful experience is provided for the millions of Parklands visitors every year.

Help us maintain these nearly 4,000-acres by registering today.

Safety for everyone is our number one priority so extra measures will be put in place for every runner:

  • This race will be limited to 40 runners/walkers per wave. Participants looking to complete this race competitively should sign up for a corral time between 8:00 am and 8:55 am. Participants looking to complete this race non-competitively should sign up for a corral time between 9:00 am and 9:55 am.
  • Runners need to stay in their car or run solo to warm up until 5 minutes before their designated start time.
  • Packets with bibs and timing chips must be picked up the day before the race, Friday June 11 from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm at the PNC Achievement Center at Beckley Creek Park (please wear a mask to pick up your packet. You are allowed to pick up packets for family and/or friends.
  • Please bring your own water to carry with you as you participate. There will be no water stops along the course.
  • Post-race goodies, including a bottle of water and snacks, will be pre-packaged.
  • If you are feeling under the weather or have a fever of any level, we ask you not to participate on race day.
  • If you do not feel comfortable participating in the in-person event, we totally understand. For this reason, we have the option to participate in our virtual 5K. You will still need to pick up your swag on Friday, June 11 from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm at the PNC Achievement Center at Beckley Creek Park.

In the case that Covid-19 is still impacting events and prohibits us from putting on a safe in-person event on June 12, The Parklands 5K will transition to a virtual run/walk. Participants will be able to complete the virtual 5K any time and any place from Sunday, June 6 through Sunday, June 13 and submit their results via our registration website. We will also have a pre-marked course starting and finishing at Beckley Creek Park for anyone who would want to complete the virtual 5K at The Parklands of Floyds Fork. We will make this decision prior to race weekend and will notify all registrants if this transition is necessary.
