Mayor's Annual Ride and Run

MARR-Logo-2019  

On April 20th, join the Des Moines Park and Recreation Department for the 2019 Mayor’s Annual Ride and Run for Trails (MARR). New this year, the event will kick-off at Principal Park (1 Line Drive) with a breakfast from 8:30 a.m. - 10 a.m.  The 5K and 1-mile family fun walk starts at 9 a.m., featuring a route inside the stadium and shown live on the videoboard. Mayor Frank Cownie will lead the 22-mile ride, which leaves the park at 10 a.m.  Proceeds for both events will go towards the construction of the Des Moines River Trail - Phase 2.

This year’s MARR festivities will include a pre-ride breakfast from 8:30am - 10:00am at Principal Park (starting line) and a drawing for a bike, valued at $600 and donated by Bike World. This year’s ride will consist of one 22-mile route.
