About This Activity
Find your happy! Run, walk, and play with your family, team, or community. Take home the healthiest goody bag in town, including fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Field Day 5K starts and finishes in the Beach Park meadow, and follows an out-and-back course along the beautiful Des Moines Creek trail. The focus is on making exercise fun for the whole family. The race is self-timed with a moderate pace, although a stopwatch timing option will be offered to competitive types who wish to start 15 minutes ahead of the pack.
After the race, stay for field day games and fun. This event coincides with Kids Day at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market, and will include fun for everyone.
