DES MOINES - Winter and cold weather didn't stop athletes from getting outside to take part in the 30th annual Red Flannel Run.
Many runners donned flannel-ware to stay toasty in the cold conditions. In addition to the run, an optional triathlon was added and held at the Wellmark YMCA.
The Y-Tri---as it's often affectionately called----had a swim and bike ride, before the 5K. The triathlon was so popular that both waves of it were full.
