Runners completing the Race at Prairie Creek Redwoods State park

7th Annual VIRTUAL Run in the Redwoods 5K


Register HERE


October 3-10, 2020


In order to keep everyone safe, this year’s Run in the Redwoods 5k is going virtual. 

Participation is easy! Register for the run/walk and ask your family and friends to join you. Run or walk a 5k anytime between October 3-10…or not! Even if you’re not able to participate in the run/walk, you can still support Redwood Parks Conservancy (RPC) simply by registering and paying the entry fee…and you’ll receive a long-sleeve custom event shirt. Youth registrants get FREE race bibs and finisher ribbons.

You can run, walk, treadmill, hop, skip, even paddle your 5K! Once you have logged your time, we will have a page available to post your time and details of your 5k.

We have more in store to make the most of the Virtual Run in the Redwoods experience, including videos from the park, running bibs and finisher ribbons and ways to participate from wherever you are with photos and videos. Check our Facebook page for updates:  All registered participants will get email updates with details.

The Virtual Run in Redwoods 5k is one of only two fundraising events RPC uses to support our partner parks so we need your help more than ever before. 

All proceeds from the event, including support from our generous sponsors, will provide critical funds needed to support education, restoration, science and visitor services in Redwood National and State Parks and our other partner public lands.

Thank you for your support and participation!
