This is a physically demanding 10K trail-run through beautiful Camp Dodge. Participants should be prepared to finish the race in around 2 hours. Participants can stop along obstacles to take in the scenery and uniqueness of the race.
Throughout the course, runners will navigate military simulations that no other trail run offers. The Iowa National Guard Trench Run 10K will include: trenches, smoke, pyrotechnics, blank fire, military vehicles, fire trucks, streams, and the possibility of an occasional helicopter flyby.
The race is dedicated to and memorializes the sacrifices of service members and their families during World War I, also known as The Great War.
The first 300 registrants will receive a Trench Run t-shirt.
