IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART THAT WE ANNOUNCE WE HAVE CANCELLED THE 2020 RUN4TROOPS.
This charity event takes place every year because of the generous support by sponsors, runners, and volunteers who work year-round to support the event. However, the few months leading up to the race are the most important for the race to succeed. With the coronavirus pandemic affecting our Dubuque-community, we feel it is unfair to ask our sponsors (many of whom are local businesses) and volunteers for the kind of effort in time and treasure that is necessary to run an event of the quality we have come to expect from Run4Troops.
With the uncertainty we have right now, along with the concern for the safety and health of our racers and volunteers, this is the right choice for us this year. We certainly hope the spread of COVID-19 turns a corner and begins to improve soon, which will give us and our sponsors time to assess the stresses that were put on our companies, our employees and families and take the steps toward recovery.
We are constantly humbled by the amazing support that our community, sponsors and competitors have given us over the last 12 years. While we will miss all of you in 2020, put Run4Troops on your calendars for June 26, 2021 – we will be back, and we will be bigger and better than ever.
Be well, and be safe. Hope to see you out on the trail soon.

IT'S ALL FOR THE TROOPS.
Run4Troops was created to support those who serve. As patriots of America, we are proud to honor our men and women in uniform by donating all proceeds to support Tri-State Military – past, present and future. Hoorah! Whether you’re an elite runner looking to qualify for Boston, a weekend Marathon Maniac, or just getting off the couch to do your first 5k as a part of a relay team, there’s something for everyone.
You'll be sure to PR this fast, gently sloping course. Follow an out-and-back route of a once bustling railroad into a 450 foot deep valley past old mining and mill towns while discovering the rugged beauty that welcomes thousands of bicyclists and hikers each year. The mountain trail in prairie country is set in the deep, rugged woodlands with a gently sloping grade making travel easy and enjoyable. You'll view the numerous river outlooks, sheer limestone bluffs, interpretive sites, and railroad artifacts along this beautiful, crushed-limestone trail that will surely be easy on your knees and joints!
In order to be guaranteed a shirt and medal, you must register before May 15, 2020.
