City of Des Moines Parks and Recreation Department

2022 Nature Trail Running Series

September 7th - 28th, 2022
Various Nature Trails

Sign up below to volunteer for a fitness series in partnership with Fleet Feet Des Moines and Capital Striders! Volunteers will lead runners of all skill levels to explore the nature trails in our parks system! 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 take place on paved surfaces. Registration deadline is Friday, August 12th. 


In order to comply with emergency proclamations by the Governor or Mayor, as such may be amended from time to time, and as public health guidelines evolve, for the safety of staff and the public, the Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel at any time. In addition, the Department reserves the right to change the registration requirements at any time. The Department will contact the volunteers as soon as reasonably possible with such cancellation or changes.

The City of Des Moines cannot guarantee that the volunteer or any of the event attendees will not become infected with COVID-19.  Volunteers and attendees use the City’s facility at their own risk.  

There are no shifts available at this time.
