General Info


The Run to Exile brings you both a 5K and 10K race through downtown Des Moines on June 16 at 9AM!

Registration Gives You!

Custom Bib with Chip Timing
Custom Exile Brewing Pint Glass
Your First Beer
Stein Holding Contest
Post-Race Party!

After the Run, It's the After Party


Each runner will get a commemorative beer glass from Exile Brewing Co, and a beer to fill it. If you're a runner who's not of age or don't care for a beer, no worries, we'll have options for you!

We'll hang out post-race, listen to music, play some games, eat great food, and have an awesome time...all leading up to awards and the THUNDERDOME that is the Stein Holding Contest!

Tell friends and family who aren't running to come and join us for mega fun times! Festivites, food, and beer - it's a can't miss!

Stein Holding Contest

First Run Then Stein Hold!

Are you signed up to race? Then you're signed up to participate, if you're tough enough, in the Run to Exile Stein Holding Contest! Hold a 1 liter stein full of beer perpendicular to your shoulder, for AS LONG AS YOU CAN! We'll be giving away a $100 Exile Brewing Gift Card plus a custom aluminum growler to the top male and female!

We will run the contest with as many heats as necessary to determine the winners! Start working those shoulders! It'll be a test of strength, endurance, and of course, figuring out who you'll share your beer with!


Registration takes less than 5 minutes! And the earlier you register the more money you save. Sign up and invite a friend or five!

You'll also have the option to add a DSM Beer Mile Registration when you sign up! The Beer Mile is on June 15 at el Bait Shop, the day before Run to Exile. Signing up for both events at the same time saves you $10!
