Des Moines Marathon
Race day features the IMT Des Moines Marathon and Half Marathon, Bankers Trust Marathon Relay presented by Iowa Games, and The Principal Financial Group 5K Road Race.
All races start and finish in the heart of downtown Des Moines on the Locust Street Bridge at 8 a.m.
"The IMT Des Moines Marathon is all about community; the community of volunteers, race committee, and the great city of Des Moines that embraces this awesome event. The IMT Des Moines Marathon is a perfect size event with 9,000 runners. Large enough that you have plenty of runners to run with but small enough that you feel like you're part of the IMT Des Moines Marathon family," Bart Yasso, Runner's World Chief Running Officer.
The first running of the Marathon was in 2002. More than 9,000 athletes participated in the 2013 races.
