The Parklands & WLKY 5K

Beckley Creek Park

Thank you for joining us for the 2023 Parklands & WLKY 5K!

900 runners, walkers, and other Parklands supporters gathered on Saturday, June 3rd to raise funds for the annual operations and maintenance of this nearly 4,000-acre, donor and visitor-supported park system!

The Parklands & WLKY 5K 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 during millions of visits to The Parklands every year.

In addition to supporting the parks you know and love, each participant received a race medal and the 2023 5K t-shirt featured below:
