Iowa’s Running Road Trip

Jefferson to Des Moines | 75 miles | 18 exchange points

The Market to Market® Relay Iowa covers 75 miles over 18 stages on a scenic and varied course. Join 6, 7, or 8 of your closest pals, hop in a van, run, rest and repeat. The course follows the Raccoon River Valley Trail System, paved streets, and gravel back roads through a diverse and scenic slice of west central Iowa.

Combine the running with outrageous costumes, memorable van rides, and a lively Post-Race Shindig & Expo in downtown Des Moines and it all adds up to 1 unforgettable day. This is one running event you won’t want to miss. Register now to secure a spot in the running road trip.
