The 2017 Des Moines Turkey Trot is a 5k or 5 mile option along with a Tot Trot. It is like a highlight reel of the city that leads the country in community pride. Ready to experience downtown Des Moines, or show it off to your visiting family and friends? Here's your chance!
Athletes will start their Thanksgiving run with the Des Moines Courthouse as their backdrop in the heart of the Court District. From there both 5K and 5 mile runners will make their way across the Des Moines River and through the center of the Historic East Village. A slight uphill will run athletes around the whole of the State Capitol Complex which offers the most famous view of downtown Des Moines. From there, it's downhill for home!
5 Mile Athletes will finish their holiday "tour" with a scenic jaunt to the Botanical Center before returning across the Women's Achievement Bridge and finishing by running in front of the historic World Food Prize building. Join us for the city's largest Thanksgiving Day tradition!
