- RUN4TROOPS has worked diligently & cooperatively…
…in the community with the stable support of the Dubuque Sports Commission. Way back when we were ready to contract with a timing system, the Sports Commission was right there to award RUN4TROOPS a much-needed grant to cover that cost and they have been there for us and with us ever since. Now we are approaching double digit years and are consistently bringing in participants from 25 plus states and 5 countries. It definitely takes a village to coordinate and implement such a quality event and we have a very strong & solid village here in the Dubuque area with many volunteers and sponsors.
- We had a really successful event…
- They over deliver and under promise…
