Train For The Half-Marathon Now

The weather is changing, time to lace up those running shoes and really get ready for Iowa's Distance Classic. Registration opens later than most "big-time" races, why? We want to make sure you are committed and ready to complete 13.1 miles. Before you sign up you should be running 10-20 miles as a novice runner, 20-30 miles as a intermediate runner and 30+ miles as a advance runner. Be at the starting line May 30th, confident and ready to make the trek from Saylorville Dam to downtown Des Moines. Use this chart to help with your training!
