Travel to and Visit Des Moines

Catch the essence of Des Moines in a $40 million sculpture park. A “green” bicycle sharing program. A free downtown trolley. Running trails abound. Stroll comfortably through the downtown skywalks connected to the centrally-located Iowa Events Center. Shop til you drop in diverse shops in the Historic East Village. Catch an Iowa Cubs baseball game at Principal Park. Stroll through Court District and live the nightlife. Or sing along to a show at the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines. Downtown Des Moines is a whirring hub of things to do - giving you the power to catch more. To remember more.

Air Travel

The Des Moines International Airport serves the midwest with many direct flights (19 from major cities) and quick connections to destinations across the United States.  Fly United, America, Southwest, US Air, Delta and more to Des Moines.  Find flight information, maps and more!

Ground Transport & Parking

A special charter bus has been scheduled for Saturday afternoon/evening to take you from the host hotel to your hotel so you can freshen up before the Closing Reception and the National Running Awards Banquet.  Friday night and Sunday morning we will be taking attendees to the Drake Relays on charter buses from the Host Hotel and Embassy Suites (need to fact check this). Friday night is to watch the Drake Relays “Under the Lights” events, and Sunday morning is to participate in the Hy-Vee Road Races.

All of the hotels listed for the RRCA Convention provide complementary shuttle service to and from the airport.  Contact your hotel to reserve shuttle service.
