DES MOINES, Iowa -- If you work in downtown Des Moines, your commute home could take a little longer Monday because of a Drake Relays event.
Hundreds are expected to crowd the area as runners lace up their sneakers for the Grand Blue Mile.
Crews are shutting down the streets that the race will be run on and they will remain closed through 7:30 p.m. Grand and Locust, between 13th Street and 6th Ave., will be blocked off as well as 6th Ave. between Grand and Locust.
The race kicks off at 6 p.m.
There will also be a recreational run for those wanting to take their own pace.
