It's time again for the Des Moines Marathon and the Castaways have been asked to once again bring our fun, tropical spirit and our energy to the runners.  This will be our 11th TIME hosting a water station and we will be BACK to our traditional location this year in Water Works Park!

Many of you have done this with us each year, and we look forward to having you back.  First timers - you're welcome too!  This is a very fun day, with lots to do.

We'll start off by staging our area and begin to mix the Gatorade, then start filling the many (many!) cups.  We'll get signs hung up and the music going.  Then, the fun begins as the participants start hitting our area.

We also try to ask everyone to bring treats to share with the other volunteers.  It's a long morning and food to share really helps keep our energy up!  :-)

Please use the registration area here to get signed up.  You will also need to sign up on the Des Moines Marathon website by following this link:


which will take you directly to the page to register for the Coconut Castaways Aid Station.  Volunteers must be at least 14 years old unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.  Feel free to invite family, co-workers and friends to come help.  Come join us!
