The DAV 5K Boston is a family-friendly activity and we welcome runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes of all abilities to come join us! Race your way around Castle Island and then strike a pose when you #FinishintheFort!
DAV helps more than one million veterans each year in positive, life-changing ways, at no cost to them. From the Berkshires to Provincetown, the DAV Department of Massachusetts supports our local veterans everyday with our programs and services.
We love our DAV 5K Boston volunteers! More information will be posted in September as we get closer to the DAV 5K Boston for volunteer positions. Come support our local veteran community!
Please know that we take the health and welfare of our veterans, their families, supporters, volunteers, friends, and employees very seriously. In coordination with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, as well as the City of Boston, the 2021 edition of the DAV 5K Boston will have additional safety measures.
