Run the races that help run the Park!

While many races--from small-scale fun runs and 5Ks to the St. Jude IRONMAN 70.3 Triathlon--are held at Shelby Farms Park each year, a few signature races are produced by Shelby Farms Park Conservancy that directly benefit the trails, lakes and green spaces you love! 


Earth Day Fun Run

Start your morning off movin’ and groovin’ with our Earth Day Fun Run presented by TVA and Earth Day Festival presented by International Paper.  The 2.34 mile trail around the beautiful Hyde Lake is a great warm-up to start your day of fun here at Shelby Farms Park! All proceeds from these races help support TLC for the trails, lakes and buffalo you love.

There will also be a 100 yard dash for all kids to participate in right after the fun run!

Fun Run Start Time: 10:00 AM
100 Yard Kids Dash Start Time: 11:00 AM

Registering for the fun run guarantees that you will receive an exclusive Earth Day T-shirt. Registration is $22 per person.

Discounts are applied for 4 or more registrations per transaction.
