At 10 a.m. on June 22, runners begin their conquest of Sleepy Hollow Sports Park's 5K H2O Run, stampeding through a course teeming with aquatic obstacles. Racers trudge through a sudsy car wash, jog through a creek with ankle-high water, and finish in a refreshing plunge down the massive face of a slip ‘n’ slide. Proceeds from the race benefit the American Heart Association.
Sleepy Hollow Sports Park
Sleepy Hollow Sports Park sprawls over 80 acres of fields and slopes buzzing with a variety of year-round activities, from go-karts and bumper boats to downhill sledding. The team puts together two 5K races throughout the year: the Mud Run and Beer Run. During these meticulously constructed events, Sleepy Hollow will pit runners against manmade obstacles and natural obstacles.
Being an Iowa-based company, Sleepy Hollow supports more than 300 groups annually, providing funding for causes ranging from local schools to cancer research. The park also serves as the permanent residence of the annual Des Moines Renaissance Faire and Haunted Scream Park.
