Every fall for 35 years running, 7,500 runners gather at a 500-acre outdoor museum of rural farming life, just outside of Des Moines, for the largest cross-country race in North America. Deep creek crossings (waist deep!), hills, muddy slopes and obstacles are all part of the harrier experience, with many runners completing the 7-mile course in creative costumes to up the fun factor.
