If you are a Market to Market Relay Iowa veteran, you will notice a few course modifications this year due to construction and improving the course.

Stages 13 and 14 are new and provide runners a better experience through the Waukee/Clive area. Stage 15 has been altered because of construction on the Clive Greenbelt Trail. Our Finish Line has moved slightly due to construction on the Court Ave Bridge.

  • What happens if I need to add or substitute a runner?
    • Substituting a runner now costs $15 and making a change is simple. Just go to the website here and add or delete runners as you did previously.
  • What happens if my team loses a runner and we decide not to replace them?
    • No action is required if you still have at least 5 runners registered. Example: If you lose 1 person on an 8 person team and your team decides to compete with 7 runners. You DON’T have to do anything. DO make sure you have at least 5 runners registered and no more than 8. Teams with only 4 team members are not allowed to participate.
