Welcome to the second running of the Groundhog Grind and what we hope will be a challenging running event in the Des Moines area!  We frequently run our small count park, Thomas Mitchell Park, and we’d love to show it off to you. This course itself is not necessarily super challenging but running it on the first weekend in February in Iowa will definitely be! The temperature on this day in 2021 was -2° real temperature for the high and -9° for the low, before adding in wind chill. There was also snow on the ground. We hope to challenge and humble you with this race, it will be a grind! The 5k will be fun, and the 10k will have you wishing you signed up for the 5k! We will have the fire pits going for you when you get back and some hot chocolate to warm you up.
