DNR events have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Safety of our users, attendees, partners and staff is most important.

Parks Fitness Events

Combine your love of fitness challenges with some of Iowa’s most beautiful, natural settings. Below is a list of 5Ks, triathlons, marathons and similar events scheduled in our state parks. All are open to the public. Details and additional events will be added as they become available.

If you are a race coordinator or group who would like to sponsor an event in a state park and be added to this list, start by contacting the individual park office for guidance or visit our special events page. Most organized events held in our parks require a special events permit, which must be obtained 30 days in advance of the event.
