urban wildland half marathon and 5k

COURSE

New, redesigned courses for 2019!
Our half-marathon and 5K courses have been redesigned for the first time in 10 years! The USATF-certified half-marathon course is still circular (now a closed loop, so it begins and ends at the exact same spot), still fast and flat, still scenic! The new course passes through Wood Lake, around Taft Park, through Veterans Park, and now along a section of the Three Rivers Park District regional bike trail corridor along 76th Street. For maps of both courses, visit the Course Info page.

SUPPORTING WOOD LAKE NATURE CENTER
100% of the profits from this event benefit the 47-year environmental-education partnership between Wood Lake Nature Center and Richfield Public Schools, a program put in jeopardy in the wake of state budget cuts in 2003. The participants of this event have kept the program funded ever since.
