In order to give back more support to the programs & services that DAV offers, the DAV 5K will no longer be offering official timing and Veteran Branch of Service T-Shirts. Thank you for your understanding as we chose to give back more to the Veterans that we serve.
New Awards: We are excited to showcase the Top Teams and Top Individual Fundraisers. The Top 3 Teams & Top 3 Individual Fundraisers will be awarded on race day at the Closing Ceremonies.
Timing: We will be providing a Race Clock at the Start and Finish Line. Please bring your watch if you want your official time!
Shorter Route: Hey! We heard you! The DAV is providing a shorter walk/run option that is 1 mile or less. Signage and volunteers on race day will direct those that want to do the shorter route.
All volunteers will receive a commemorative DAV 5K shirt for their time. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled volunteer shift and check in at the volunteer tent race morning.
Continue the celebration! Immediately after the Closing Ceremonies, all participants are invited to continue honoring our military service men and women at the DAV 5K Post Party. Light snacks will be provided for all participants and registered veterans will receive 1 complimentary drink.
