    Market to Market® Relay

    May 10, 2014 - All Day at Bell Tower of Jefferson
    220 North Chestnut Jefferson, IA

    The Market to Market® Relay is what Iowa runners are talking about! A team running relay from Jefferson to Des Moines, the Market to Market® Relay Iowa covers 75 miles over 17 stages on a scenic and varied course. Join 6 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.

    Titan MOB Obstacle Course Mud Run

    August 23, 2014 - All Day at Living History Farms
    11121 Hickman Road Urbandale, Iowa

    Titan MOB (Mud, Obstacle, Beer) is a 5 to 7 mile mud obstacle course race being held on August 23rd at the Living History Farms.  We created this event for people who like a challenge, don’t mind getting a little dirty, and love to have a good time.  Featuring 20+ obstacles, Titan MOB will have you doing everything but running a straight line.  Plus, other challenges are available.

    The money we receive from the sponsors will go to three local charities we are happy to be supporting:  Amanda the Panda, Alzheimer’s Association Greater Iowa Chapter, and the Children’s Cancer Connection.  In addition to the sponsorship money, we will also donate a portion of each participant’s race fee to Amanda the Panda.  Participants may also fundraise for any of these three charities.

    For more information, please visit Titan MOB’s website at www.titan-mob.com.
