Sponsors + Supporters

We're grateful to all that have stepped up to recognize our movement as one that is important and empowering. Together, we're working to empower women to love their journey, one mile at a time. 


Official Apparel Partner - Shape® activewear

We could not be more excited to introduce you (or reintroduce you trend setters) to our 2018 Apparel Partner- Shape® activewear. Inspired by the pages of Shape® magazine, the new Shape® activewear collection weaves fashion and function to create feminine and sophisticated styles for the studio or the street. Check out www.shapeactive.com for more information. 


Carried by select partners around Des Moines as well as the midwest, Shape® activewear is the ultimate performance collection woven with the style and personality of SHAPE magazine bringing cutting-edge fabric and beauty together to create feminine and sophisticated styles that can go with you from the studio to the street. All of our athletes will be going home with top of the line- Shape Activewear athlete shirts and the chance to purchase more. 

Official Host - Jasper Winery

Jasper Winery is the official host of our 2018 event, opening their 'estate style' vineyard in the heart of downtown Des Moines to host runners for the first time. In addition to providing the perfect backdrop for the day they will be awarding our age-group winners with a private label bottle of wine to commemorate their efforts.  

Our Official Food Sponsor - Fourth + Court Hy-Vee

We are so excited to announce the Fourth + Court Hy-Vee as the official food sponsor. On race morning, not only will you be able to grab a delicious bite to eat from the pop-up Hy-Vee Bakery, but you will also see a helpful smile at the Hy-Five Mile (Mile 3).

Converging Photography

We cannot imagine putting on an event without having it captured by our friends at Converging Photography of Des Moines. When we have an event based in empowerment, passion and ultimately, emotion we know they are the only ones we want to capture it all.
