The DMACC 7th Annual "In My Boots" 5K Ruck Run is going virtual!

This annual event honors all veterans and raises funds to support veterans in need. This year, race proceeds will benefit Backpacks for Life, an organization that works to assist homeless veterans, and Paws & Effect, a non-profit that raises, trains and places professionally trained service dogs with disabled combat veterans and children.

To participate:

Register online here and pay the $35 entry fee; a race t-shirt and race packet will be mailed directly to you.

Time yourself running the 5K distance any time between now and Sept. 30th ... and feel free to run with friends and family!

Post your time and a post-run photo on the "In My Boots" 5K Facebook page.

Thank you for making a difference with us!

With any questions, please email Sean Taylor at




DMACC's In My Boots 5K was created by Sean Taylor in 2014, and is now organized by the In My Boots Student Group. The In My Boots Student Group aims to raise community awareness of the struggles that many American service men and women encounter after returning from combat. In 2020, for our 7th annual run, walk, and ruck, we invite you to join us in support of Iowa's currently deployed men and women.

Won’t you join our service men and women in the assistance of their comrades-in-arms?
