Hosting 5K Events

We have received many requests for a mapped out 5K route in Walker Johnston Park. Due to these requests, we have created a map that outlines a beautiful and scenic 5K route. If you are planning an event, or just looking to run/walk for personal reasons, this 5K route, beginning at the Walker Johnston Park Shelter, is perfect!

If your organization would like to host a 5K bike, run or walk event over some of the 54 miles of beautiful trails in Urbandale, please complete the Special Events Application Form. Please call 515-278-3963 with any additional questions.
