On April 21st, join the Des Moines Park and Recreation Department for the 2018 Mayor’s Annual Ride and Run for Trails (MARR). RAGBRAI, FLEET FEET SPORT, BIKE WORLD, and The Des Moines Register, will co-sponsor the event, and Mayor T. M. Franklin Cownie will lead the ride assisted by The Register’s own Dream Team. In addition to the ride, the Park and Recreation Department will once again offer a 5k run/walk to the day’s events.
Proceeds for both events will go towards phase 2 of the Des Moines River Trail improvement project that will connect Easter Lake and the Cownie Baseball Park.
