On April 19th join the
Des Moines Park and Recreation Department for the 2014 Mayor’s Annual Ride and Run for Trails.
RAGBRAI and The Des Moines Register will continue as co-sponsors of the
ride, which helps improve, maintain and hi-light Des Moines’s recreational
trail system. Mayor T. M. Franklin
Cownie will lead the ride assisted by The Register’s own Dream Team. In addition to the ride, the Park and
Recreation Department has added a 5k run to the day’s events.
The 5k run will start at 8:00 AM at City Hall and the route will consist of downtown trails.
The 25 mile run will start at 10:00 AM, also at City Hall, and will travel through many area neighborhoods before ending back downtown.
Event shirts will be guaranteed to all participants
that register prior to April 2nd. Zombie Burger meal cards will be
given out to the first 700 that register for one of the two events.
Proceeds for both events will go
towards improving Des Moines’ trail system. To register please visit our
website at dmparks.org
or sign up the day of the event at City Hall. Registration will begin at 7:00 am.
