As announced on Tuesday, the IMT Des Moines Marathon is partnering with the YMCA of Greater Des Moines to offer the official training program of the race to YMCA members and non-members.
The program is being called Y Go the Distance. Each YMCA branch will have its own running club, where members can focus on a specific race. Each branch will follow the same week-by-week training format. YMCA staff and volunteers will lead weekly group runs and provide training guides.
