Race Results

Iowa’s greatest running tradition will return as the kickoff to summer again in 2023. For the 44th year, runners will take on the point-to-point journey from the Saylorville Dam to Downtown Des Moines. With buses to the starting line, cold Exile beer at the finish, and some of the most memorable rural and urban miles in the middle, this is one run you won’t want to miss.
