BFT5K is so much more than just another 5K; we are a community event that fosters patriotism and gratitude by giving participants the ability to put actual miles in our military’s boots.


Benefiting families of fallen military & Veterans through Medals of Honor

Grab your family, friends, co­workers, Church/Sports Club and lace up for our Military & Veterans! The BOOTS FOR TROOPS: 5K Ruck/Walk/Run is the perfect opportunity to show your patriotism, as well as your love and support for those who have or continue to serve in our Armed Forces. Additionally, your participation helps to fund ongoing “Medals of Honor” programs that honor the fallen and their families. So… dig out and lace up a pair of combat boots, work boots, or running shoes and support our warriors in uniform!


Our Vision

Build a fun and symbolic community event where people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities can come together in unity to show their support of our military both past and present and all those who serve our country and community including their families and first responders.
