    I love this race and plan to continue doing it! The race production is top notch – it always amazes me how well the driving to the next location goes so smoothly. The shirts were great quality and being a captain you get special extra swag- this year it was socks. I love that they do cups instead of medals because I hate finisher medals! They space the teams out well so you end up encountering a lot of different teams throughout the day. If you have a laid back team with good attitudes it can be a lot of fun! Will most definitely be back!

    I guess I’m not the biggest fan of the team element but I think if you get a really good group together it could be a lot of fun. The race starts in Jefferson and runs into downtown Des Moines. For me, it was a really stressful day of trying to get to my leg before my super speedy teammate got there. Lots of teams dress in costume and decorate their vans. I didnt see very many photographers on course and the one I did see got in our way at the handoff and my brother ran into him. I also wouldve liked a medal but we just got drinking glasses. Overall, I don’t know if I would do this race again. It was an expensive race for only getting a cup and a tshirt.

    I’ve done Market to Market Iowa twice now and it’s an experience like no other! Spending a day running, cheering, driving to the next location and all around just having a great time! The organizers do an incredible job making sure everyone knows where they’re going while both running and driving. The guide book has all the information you need in it! They encourage costumes and have a costume contest! If you want to have an amazing day then find 6 of your friends and do the 75 mile running road trip!
