Thje first annual DES MOINES MARATHON and HALF-MARATHON will be held Sunday October 6th, 2002. Over 1,000 runners are planned to run the race along with thousands of spectators to cheer them on. The Des Moines Marathon web site is up for awards, and the race coordinator is up for coordinator of the year and the race isn't even here! The Des Moines Marathon, Half-Marathon, Expo, Pasta Party and Post-Race activities will become a tradition that brings people together. We hope you will join us. How are cyclists involved?
