Join CITA for a great day of mountain biking, trail running and hanging with the most fun people around at our Center Trails. Grab the family, grab your friends, politely escort them down to Greenwood Park and then apologize for grabbing them. But they will thank you because there’s something for everyone! Rock the Du on your own or partner up (1 runner, 1 cyclist) if you’re skeered to tackle the whole thing alone.
**100% of the proceeds will go toward upgrading the Center Trails in Spring 2015.**
CITA already has a professional plan commissioned by the City of Des Moines, and we need money and volunteers to put it in place! If you don’t want to participate in the Dirty Duathlon, we can always use volunteers – Volunteer Here.
