The Red Flannel Run is the unofficial start of the running season in Des Moines and consists of a 5K Run. Due to popular demand, we are bringing back the optional Y-Tri to the race!! Proceeds go toward the Wellmark YMCA Annual Campaign, helping to make the YMCA accessible to all. The Red Flannel Run & Y-Tri is also part of the YMCA Triathlon Series. Please sign up for the Ice Breaker Triathlon first in order to qualify.
