Our 5k is the perfect event for women of all abilities and will highlight both the first and final finisher in the same empowering atmosphere. The course has no time limit and will feature DJ's and cheer squads to help make the miles slip by. The Route will stay primarily around the winery and Water Works Park. Our women's 5K event is the perfect excuse to get together with your girlfriends to break a sweat and toast a glass...not that you need an excuse. 

Our 5K race guide covers the race weekend essentials and will help to ensure a stress free event.

Half Marathon

The signature event of the weekend, our half marathon is packed with on course entertainment and strong women. Starting at Jasper Winery this course runs through the south side of downtown Des Moines entering via 'The Blue Bridge.' Athletes will pass The Principal Park outfield on their way to Gray's Lake Park. The final miles of your 13.1 will be spent in Water Works Park in the center of our entertainment before hitting an epic and memorable finish line.

Team Relay

Our 3-woman relay is a perfect excuse to get together with your girlfriends and work together to take down the challenge of a half marathon. Each team member will run 4-4.5 miles of our half marathon course before 'passing the baton' at our rowdy relay exchange zones. Relay teams will be given special parking near Jasper Winery to ensure they're able to finish together before raising a glass together at our post race party. Each team member receives half marathon swag.
