Register for 2025 Grand Blue Mile

Your Race. Your Pace. Your Mile.

The Grand Blue Mile was created by the Drake Relays and Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield to encourage healthy habits and celebrate personal achievement. Since its founding in 2010, the Grand Blue Mile has hosted more than 45,000 participants representing 47 states, six countries, and four continents.

This feel-good event brings friends and families together in the spirit of well-being through a one-mile street run suited for all ages and abilities. From recreational to competitive, there's something for everyone at the Grand Blue Mile.

Enjoy the hybrid event in the setting that suits you best -- either in-person in downtown Des Moines on April 22, or virtually in your own community from April 19-26.
