Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The "Farm Race" raises funds for Living History Farms and more. Over the last 10 years, the race has given $350,000 to the Living History Farms (a not-for-profit museum).
The race has also funded the Capital Striders endowment for scholarships to area senior cross country athletes; raised food/money for the Des Moines Area Religious Council Food Pantry and donated to area age-group track & swimming teams, the American Red Cross, the Boy Scouts of America, the M.D.A., and area Fire Departments. Proceeds from the race help sponsor area races, purchase equipment and racing supplies used at road races and middle school/ high school XC meets
The 32nd Living History Farms race celebrates your running with a Hot Post Race Meal brought to you by the Iowa Beef Industry Council and the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant , VIP packet pick-up, chip timing, and youth runs, You will again be challenged by the world’s richest farm land as you wade through creeks, dodge farm animals and claw your way to the top of gullies with 7500 (limit) other runners of questionable senses. It’s a great way to end the racing season and experience running stories to re-live and re-tell throughout the winter. Stay for the "Outdoors in November" post race lunch, door prizes and awards ceremony.
