VIP Pasta Dinner at Renaissance Savery Hotel
Saturday, October 17 at 6 pm
The Renaissance Savery executive chef has crafted a made from scratch meal featuring Iowa products. This is not your ordinary ‘all-you-can-eat’ spaghetti dinner… however, you can eat as much as you like. Served in the Savery main banquet room, it’s a great chance to eat good food with good friends, while making some new ones, before heading off to rest for the big race. You won’t leave disappointed. 400 Locust Street, Des Moines, IA 50309. Register now.

Also attending the VIP Pasta Dinner will be members of myTEAM TRIUMPH, pro & elite athletes, the pace team, and the race director.
