5-Mile Combo

Take part in the Mercy Live Up Loop 5-Mile Run on Saturday and combine it with your race of choice in the IMT Des Moines Marathon, IMT Des Moines Half Marathon, or Principal 5K Road Race on Sunday.

Participants in the 5-Mile + Combo receive a finisher medal in the Mercy Live Up Loop on Saturday and their race of choice on Sunday. Both finisher medals magnetically combine with one another to highlight your 5-Mile + Combo accomplishment in Des Moines.

Signing up for the 5-Mile Combo is simple. Look for the 5-Mile Combo race registration category during online registration to sign up for the Live Up Loop on Saturday and race of choice on Sunday.

Or, you can register at this time for your race of choice on Sunday and then come back to register later for the Live Up Loop if you should decide you want to add the Saturday race and compete both days in Des Moines.

Double your race. Double your hardware. Double your fun in Des Moines!
