  • WHO: Everyone is welcome! Bring your family, Fido, and your cheering section. We will have a cheering station set up where your family and friends can make signs, grab a cowbell, and a small American flag. 

Dogs and strollers are welcome: Please note that this is a cross country course and has a 1/4 mile section of off-road trail that is NOT suitable for wheeled transportation of any kind. Dogs MUST remain leashed and owners must pick-up after bathroom breaks

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.  So… dig out and lace up a pair of combat boots, work boots, or running shoes and support our warriors in uniform!
