12K Run

This unique race course will test your skills with four big hills, steep grades, two sets of staircases, a swinging bridge, and running upstream in Richardson's Creek twice -- your shoes WILL get wet! 12k runners will see the best fall scenery as the gravel, grass, and dirt trails tak you into the Iowa Arboretum, near the Des Moines River, and through the creek. To further challenge our 12K adventure runners, our climbing tower will be open Friday 10/12 from Noon to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday 10/13 from 7:30-11:00 a.m. Medals will be awarded to runners who complete both the 12K race and 50-foot climb.
