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, Bankers Trust Marathon Relay or Principal 5K Road Race on Sunday.

Participants in the IMT Des Moines Marathon 5-Mile Combo receive a Mercy Live Up Loop 5-Mile Run stadium blanket and finisher medal on Saturday and their race of choice apparel item and finisher medal on Sunday, as well as an IMT Des Moines Marathon running cap. Both finisher medals combine with one another to highlight your IMT Des Moines Marathon 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 Mercy 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 Mercy 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!

I-35 Challenge

The I-35 Challenge is a partnership between the Kansas City Marathon presented by Garmin and the IMT Des Moines Marathon. The two events take place on the same weekend in October - Kansas City on Saturday (10/20) and Des Moines on Sunday (10/21). The goal of the challenge is to complete both races.

Participants can elect to either do BOTH marathons or BOTH half marathons or any combination of marathon and half marathon in the same weekend to receive an I-35 Challenge shirt and finisher medal worthy of their accomplishment. Two cities. Two Races. 190 miles. Two great weekends.
