There is still time to enter next week’s Dam-to-Dam race in Des Moines. The events includes the largest 20 kilometer run in the country. Kurt Schaffer is director for the race which will be run for the 27th straight year. He says it’s unique because it’s a point to point race.

Schaffer says more than five thousand runners are expected to take part in the event which also includes a 5K and a youth run. He says it’s a good time of year and they’ll have entertainment after the race.

He says the race is popular with recreational runners. Schaffer says they do not pay to bring in elite runners and focus on local regional runners. He says they provide a good race course, entertainment, and a medal along with clothing.

Schaffer says if you have now registered to run in the event there is still an opportunity to do so. He says you can register on the website. The race is June 3rd.
