Plassman Athletic Center presented by DEKA Affiliates

September 02, 2023


This DEKA FIT Midwest Road Show presented by DEKA Affiliates is a slimmed down version of the big show featuring the same 10 functional fitness zones preceded by a 500-meter run as all DEKA FIT events, giving you the opportunity to earn your DEKA FIT Mark, DEKA Trifecta, and Finishers Shirt & Medals!

DEKA is fitness gamified and designed for all levels. No matter your background or experience, DEKA will help you set your baseline so you can train with a purpose.

Additionally, DEKA Marks from this Road Show will be added to the Global Leaderboard which means you can also qualify at this event for the 2023 DEKA World Championships!

This DEKA FIT Midwest Road Show is made possible with the assistance of DEKA Affiliates in the Midwest U.S. and beyond.

How this DEKA FIT Road Show differs from our traditional DEKA FIT:

  • Heavy focus on DEKA Affiliates.
  • Tickets are at their lowest price so there are no discounts available.
  • No Elite cash prizes but Elite Trophies & Age Group podiums are available!
  • No onsite DEKA Merchandise.
  • No bag check.
  • You may bring your own hydration and enjoy the onsite food vendor.

“I love how DEKA truly tests my physical AND mental fitness, all while putting me in a competitive atmosphere. The energy of the other athletes pushing themselves helps motivate you to give it everything you’ve got! Whether you’re beginner, intermediate, or advanced- it’s you VS. you out there… nothing like DEKA!”
