Register for the 2020 Mayor's Annual Ride and Run on Saturday, April 18! The proceeds from this year’s event will go towards E-911 trail markers, which will provide first responders with an exact location in case of an emergency on the trails. Approximately 229 markers will be placed every ¼ mile on our major trails, starting this summer.
The event will kick-off at Principal Park (1 Line Drive) with a breakfast, followed by a 5K run and 1-mile family fun walk starting at 8 a.m. Mayor Frank Cownie will lead the 20-mile ride, which leaves the park at 10 a.m.
Registration fees are $35 per adult before April 17 and $50.00 on site the day of the event. Youth ages 5-17 are $5 and children 4 and younger are free. Registration includes a t-shirt, breakfast, refreshments at the rest stop and a repair van by Bike World. For an additional $5, participants can enter both events. Sign up online at dmparks.org and help sustain one of Des Moines’ most popular and treasured amenities, the trail system.
