Event Description

With BYU set to join Iowa State in the Big 12 we are celebrating with a Texarkana tailgate the morning of October 15 (Iowa State will play Texas in Austin and BYU will host Arkansas in Provo later that afternoon). 

Register for the 5K with $30 by October 14 or $35 on Race Day.

The run will take place at the Raccoon River Multi-Use Trail in west Des Moines. The course is a 3.2 mile crushed rock/asphalt nature trail around the entire lake. The trail winds its way between the lake and the Raccoon River providing a natural experience that can rarely be found in an urban environment.

Packet Pickup: Pick up your race packet the morning of the race at the race site beginning at 8:00 am.  

Proceeds from the Alma Mater 5k support college scholarships for students from Iowa.
