The CITA Des Moines Dirty Duathlon is our annual bike/run race on single-track trails.
Join us for a fun day of mountain biking and trail running on Center Trails at Greenwood Park! The course will incorporate two new miles of professionally built single-track trail that passes through an old growth forest, includes super fun, flowy downhill, a creek crossing, and plenty of lung-busting climbing.
Rock the Duathlon on your own, or partner up (1 runner, 1 cyclist) if you’re not ready to tackle the whole thing alone.

**100% of the proceeds will go toward maintaining and building our single-track trails.**
