Join the Run for Central America team and take on the challenge to do the DesMoines Half Marathon. If you want to make a life-changing impact in the lives of hundreds of families in Central America, we are your team! Considered an excellent half-marathon for first-time participants, the course highlights an out-and-back course that starts and finishes in front of the Des Moines Civic Center. Thanks in part to its downtown location and the stretches of the race that wind through the city’s parkland areas, the race is largely fast and flat, with plenty of urban scenery as well as tree-lined park roads and open green spaces. Register today, get your tee shirt, begin training, and raise awareness for the needs of families in Central America.
