Des Moines is more than just cornfields. Some people say, it’s culture without the cost. Art without the attitude. Travel without the traffic. And walkability without the worry.
Race day starts with a 1.2-mile urban swim in Gray’s Lake with downtown Des Moines acting as your background. Athletes will push their limits on this 56-mile ride featuring rolling hills and city views. As you transition to the last leg of your race, you will feel the energy of this up-and-coming city. The final leg of this race features an action-packed city tour, spectator lined trails and a downtown finish line you and your support crew will never forget.
Our aim is to remove any travel and accommodation stress from you, allowing you to enjoy this exciting IRONMAN event location. With an experienced Nirvana project manager in resort who has helped deliver logistical support for some high profile events, you will be in the best possible hands.
