Join Dam to DSM

Is there another race that represents Iowa running more than Dam to Dam? Frankly the answer is easy—NO! Dam to Dam is for runners; not a charity, a sponsor or a non-running organization. It is “run” by volunteers and non-profit.

With marathons being out of reach, Dam to Dam seems to revive an early summer goal to go far enough to tire but not so far to fall apart. There has been little doubt that each year this race displays Iowa talent as well as any race. Additionally each runner is treated like the next.

Des Moines’ Dam to Dam races offer some of the flattest terrain and most scenic views that Iowa’s capitol city has to offer, with a race that starts at one dam outside the city and crosses over another in the heart of downtown.

Course Highlights

Runners start the race outside the city at the Saylorville Dam, which was built over a dozen years between the mid-1960s and the late 1970s as a way to control floods on the Des Moines River. From there, the race starts in the middle of the dam and heads east toward Horseshoe Road and 37th Street, and from there heads into the Des Moines River valley.

The next stretch features a big downhill around the 1st mile marker and then lots of flat terrain through the valley, as runners head south along 37th Street, Toni Drive and 66th Avenue. The elevation doesn’t change much again for the next five miles, remaining flat until runners hit the half-way point of the race on Morningstar Drive.
