"It was awesome!
My first half marathon and it couldn't have been a better course to start with! The support groups and volunteers were amazing.
It was a well run day start to finish!"
"The hospitality, scenic course and race amenities make this a world-class race for sure!"
"Fantastic event!
The course displayed a lot of Des Moines and was lined with spectators throughout."
"I can think of only a handful of times when I've posted five stars across the board.
In this case, I would have considered six stars."
"It should be on every marathoner’s to-do list,” Jeff Galloway, U.S. Olympian and
America's Running Coach.
"I'd recommend this race
to any and to all.
The I-35 Challenge makes Iowa
a great option for 50 State clubs."
"An overall great race!
Thanks to all of the volunteers who were cheering.
That support was amazing!"
"The IMT Des Moines Marathon knows how to celebrate the sport of running ...
for all ages!"
