Hands-down, this is my absolute favorite event. In fact, I just registered for my 10th consecutive Dam to Dam last week. And, Runner's World magazine gives this event a nice mention in their April 2017 issue (page 91).
There are many reasons why I LOVE this event.
First of all, it was my first-ever distance event. (Recap HERE)
|My first Dam to Dam, May 31, 2018 (pay no attention to the dorky hair or white shoes)|
|Can you see the Des Moines skyline...13 miles away?|
|Each flag (along both sides of the course) represents a fallen soldier|
|The Dam runners on the bus go up and down, up and down....|
Even though it's 13.1 continuous miles, there's continuous crowd support, music, and entertainment. Also, there are plenty of porta-pots and water/fuel stations every mile or so.
They have great tattoos!
