From the starting line near the athletic stadium on the tree-lined campus of Drake University, the Hy-Vee Road Races at the Drake Relays Half Marathon follows a counter-clockwise, out-and-back loop course through Des Moines, winding through a mix of neighborhoods, commercial districts, and park and green space areas. Runners finish the race near the Fine Arts Center along 25th Street.
