Description

Our Purpose: The Urban Wildland Half Marathon & 5K began in 2003 to save Wood Lake Nature Center's environmental education partnership with the Richfield Public Schools, which was in jeopardy due to cuts in local government aid.  Since Wood Lake Nature Center's opening in 1971, Richfield's K-6 students had visited Wood Lake multiple times a year as part of their science curriculum. Thanks to the Urban Wildland, the program was spared and has continued every year with the proceeds from this event.

Registration for the 19th Urban Wildland Half Marathon & 5K will open at 250 in-person participants for each race on January 15th at 12:00 AM.

  • The capacity for the in-person Half Marathon is 250 registrants.
  • The capacity for the in-person 5K is 250 registrants.

If the uncertainty around COVID-19 were to subside early enough in 2021, registration could possibly be reopened to offer more participants the chance to run in-person. 

A virtual option is available for both the Half Marathon and 5K race as well as a 10K and 10 mile race. 

If COVID-19 conditions do not improve and the in-person races are cancelled, registrations for those who registered for the in-person races will automatically be converted to the virtual races and details for reporting finishing times will be emailed to participants. 

In the case of in-person cancellation, Urban Wildland has formulated the following Discount Plan for those who register for the in-person 2021 races. 

  • All 2021 Urban Wildland in-person race registrants will receive a discount code good for 33% off of their entry fees for the next 3 races they register for between 2022 to 2024
  • The discount code is for your use only and cannot be transferred to another person.
  • The discount code may only be used one-time per year.
  • Registration instructions and your discount code will be emailed to you at a later date.
  • In-person registrations may choose to transfer to any virtual race distance for 2021 races at any time for any reason but will not receive a refund for the difference in price point between in-person registration and virtual registration. 
  • Virtual registrants do not qualify for the cancellation discount plan.
  • In-person and virtual race entry fees are non-refundable. The only exception that will be made to our “no refund policy” is for those who are on active military duty and are deployed for service (a copy of deployment orders is required).
