2021 Nature Trail Running Series

Presented by Des Moines Parks and Recreation, Fleet Feet, and Capital Striders

Runners of all levels explore nature trails in our park system, guided by volunteers from Fleet Feet and Capital Striders! Each Wednesday in September at 6 p.m., participants are invited to join the three or six mile guided runs. In the event trail conditions are not ideal, runs will be on paved surfaces.

Please note: All participants must sign a waiver for both Des Moines Parks and Recreation and Fleet Feet once per season. Please arrive early to complete both waivers. You can also find the Des Moines Parks and Recreation waiver online.
