Race For Hope DSM

May 11 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Race for Hope DSM has become a staple in the brain tumor community. As Iowa’s first and largest brain tumor awareness fundraiser, Race for Hope DSM has raised over $325,000 for brain tumor research!

Each year, over 1,000 runners, walkers, kids, families, and supporters gather at Water Works Park in Des Moines, Iowa. A large community has grown over the years and race day has become a bit like a family reunion.

Race for Hope DSM brings together runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. There are four separate options so there’s something for everyone!

  • Kids through 13 are welcome to join the 100 meter Kids Fun Run
  • Walkers are welcome on the untimed 2K walk
  • Walkers and runners looking for a traditional race can join the 5K USATF certified course
  • 10.1K USATF certified course

All distances are located in a beautiful setting, are fully paved, and wind through beautiful landscapes.
