“If you build it they will come.” That’s been the battle cry of Iowa since that movie came out. Iowa is flat. Common myth debunked. Nothing there but corn…We have beans too! The Happy Mutants are stoked to be hosting a Series event in our home state.
Think that 300 miles in Iowa will be flat? Boring? Not a challenging way to spend your weekend? Come see what life in the Midwest is all about…hospitality so sweet you get cavities! Ottumwa will be our home base for this 72-hour/300 mile USARA Regional Qualifier and they are rolling out the red carpet with a prologue event that will be a blast to be a part of. Keeping with the historic aspect of the HMAR Series it is entirely possible for our racers to walk in the same fields that were traversed by the Mormons as they trekked across Iowa. The south/central region of Iowa holds cultural treasures, ghost towns and fields of amber waving grain.
Teams of two or four people and individuals (must have HM approval prior to registering) will be subjected to paddling on both flat and moving water, riding on all manner of surface (think the worst level B roads around) and hiking through parks and brambles and thickets as well as nettles to keep your senses sharp as they navigate from check point to check point around the clock.
