2023 Run at Riverview
The Impactful Opportunities With Athletes (IOWA) Foundation is excited to bring a Fun Run and 5k to Riverview Park in Des Moines. Our organizations goal through this event is to increase trail use among the youth and community in Des Moines as well as providing recreational opportunities in our parks. We will offer the race for free to participants who register for the 6-week Running Program held at Riverview Park. We also invite the community of walkers, joggers and runners to participate. Interested participants can either pay a race entry or commit to a fundraising goal which would allow them a free race entry. To add a little friendly competition you can join teams represented by your future, current or former high schools and colleges. Teams can also be created for companies and organizations.
