|Upload Your Results|
First, register for the IMT Des Moines Marathon 26.2 & 13.1 Virtual Race. Note that this year, the IMT Des Moines Marathon 26.2 & 13.1 Virtual Race registration fees coincide with regular race registration rates. So, take advantage of early season pricing. Don't wait to sign up!
Prior to race day, you will receive your official Virtual Race race number/bib. You will then receive a race-in-a-box, including your official race track jacket, athlete goodies and finisher medal following the IMT Des Moines Marathon race weekend. Additional shipping rates apply.
Next, download the Strava app. Then, join the IMT Des Moines 26.2 & 13.1 Virtual Race Club. Upload your run in Strava to the IMT DMM 26.2 & 13.1 Race Club Event in order to record your results and to be included in the virtual race leader board and challenges.
|Official Event Category Results|
Your Strava race result will not show up on the Challenge Leaderboard unless you complete 13.1 miles (21.1 km) or 26.2 miles (42.2 km). To ensure you meet the Challenge goal, we recommend you run a small amount over 13.1 miles during your activity (about .5km / .3mi). This will give you a buffer in the event your activity distance is shortened after upload to Strava due to the cleanup of GPS irregularities.
Athletes who complete the IMT DMM 26.2 & 13.1 Virtual Race Strava Club Event will receive a digital finishers badge in their Trophy Case. Results must be uploaded no later than 48 hours following the completion of the race.
Race results will also be uploaded to the official IMT Des Moines Marathon race results at onlineraceresults.com with access to a finisher certificate for download.
