The Drake Road Races, an iconic event in Des Moines for more than 50 years, serves as the startling line for the weeklong celebration of athletics in Iowa’s Capital City.

The week concludes inside historic Drake Stadium, where the competition is fierce, the athletes spectacular and the performances legendary. Fans have packed the stands for 109 years, witnessing the fall of 14 world records, 51 American records and 56 national collegiate records and countless feats of athletic excellence.
