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!

Run the races that help run Shelby Farms Park! 

Have you herd? The Buffalo 5K + 15K, presented by Velo Shelby Farms,  will return in celebration of National Bison Day on November 5! These exciting races will wind through some of the most scenic areas in Shelby Farms Park and are a  fun way to support the Park's most iconic residents–the buffalo! 

This race is a fundraiser that helps support year-round TLC for Shelby Farms Park's most recognizable residents–which also happen to be the national mammal–and their enclosure.
