Unplugged Adventures presents... The Des Moines 9 to 5 Adventure Race

The 2016 version of the DSM 9 to 5 AR will take place October 22nd, 2016 and will be open to solo racers and teams of 2, 3 or 4 people(male, female, and coed). Like our Facebook page for updates.

Solo racers will have to BRING THEIR OWN kayak, and 3 person teams will go 3 to a canoe for the paddling portion(s) of the race.

Put in a hard day working 9 to 5 in Iowa's capital city. Collect checkpoints in our parks, woods, singletrack and paved trails, lakes and rivers. All in the shadow of our capital cities' downtown skyline.

As the name suggests, this will be an 8 hour adventure racing course with mountain biking, trekking, navigation, and paddling. A great length race for first timers as well as the experienced adventure racer.
