Welcome to The Club

The IMT Des Moines Marathon is celebrating 18 years of running! To reward our athletes that come back year after year we have created the Heel to Toe Club for  athletes who have participated in the IMT Des Moines Marathon & Half Marathon, MercyOne 5-Mile Run, Bankers Trust Marathon Relay or Principal 5K Road Race with us over the past 3, 5, 10, 15 and even all 18 years. More info.

Member Clubs

Begin your Heel to Toe Club membership by registering for any of the IMT Des Moines Marathon races this year. There aren’t any additional fees. Your status in the Heel to Toe Club is based on the number of races you have completed, but only credits one race per year.

If this is your first year running with us, you will be inducted into the Heel to Toe Club after crossing the finish line in October.

If you have joined us in the past, you are automatically inducted into the Heel to Toe Club and have received credit for the races you have completed regardless of which year or how many years you ran with us. Contact us with your previous and current information if you have moved or changed your name so that you can receive credit for all of the races you have completed.

Please note that the Heel to Toe Club will expire following the completion of the 2019 race. Legacy Club members will continue to be recognized each year and at each 5-year anniversary celebration.

3-Year Club Heel to Toe Club members who have registered for 3 or more races will be rewarded for their loyalty by receiving a special gift at packet pick-up during the Scheels Sports & Fitness Expo.

Gold Club Heel to Toe Club members who have registered for 5, 10 or 15 races will be rewarded for their loyalty by receiving a special gift and commemorative pin at packet pick-up during the Scheels Sports & Fitness Expo.

Legacy Club Heel to Toe Club members who have registered every year will be acknowledged at each year’s race with a unique Legacy Club bib. Legacy Club members are acknowledged at each 5-year race anniversary celebration with free race entry.
