About This Activity

The Long John 5k is a delicious opportunity to exercise while wearing your favorite "plain jane" or "designer" long underwear!

Hey, a good life consists of a good balance right? So, knock out a 5k and reward yourself with a tasty Long John Donut & coffee! You might even choose to stick around for the Coffee & Donut Festival for a full day of fun!

This 5k (3.1 miles) Fun Run is a "run/walk" that is organized and part of the activities surrounding the Coffee & Donut Festival Des Moines. It begins the morning of the festival, April 7th at 7:15 AM and starts and ends at the same location, Seven Flags Event Center in Clive, Iowa. The race route will take you from Seven Flags onto the Greenbelt Trails heading west. We will circle an area at the Clive Aquatic Center, visit a friendly neighborhood for a few blocks and then connect again to the Greenbelt trail to head back to the finish at Seven Flags Event Center.

The Coffee & Donut Festival opens at 8:00 AM for VIP ticket holders and 9:00 AM for General Admission. If you are running the race and have a General Admission ticket, you are welcome to stick around until 9:00 AM. There will be indoor facilities ready for you if you'd like to change clothes to attend the festival.

We invite and encourage companies to participate in our race to promote a healthy lifestyle among staff–assemble a team today—registration discounts are given to groups who register as a team with 10 or more runners.

Regular registration is open through March 27, 2018, by 11:59 PM CST. Late registrations will be available during the packet pick up at Seven Flags Event Center on Friday, April 6, 2018, from 1PM-6 PM and on race day before 7 AM.

Race registration fees are structured to offer savings for early birds, military, first responders, and students as well as rates for groups with a minimum of 10 race participants.  Registration Fees are non-refundable.

Multiple non-profits will be benefiting from proceeds of the race and the festival. By supporting this race you demonstrate your commitment to supporting local charities and organizations.
