Food Trucks are pretty popular. AND So are 5K's.

These revolutionary insights sparked an idea: What if we combined these two great things?


Back in 2015, our group of friends united around a mission. We set out to build community, through a fun event, for an awesome cause.

We decided to host Des Moines' first-ever Food Truck 5K. 


It's been a blast, and we've been overwhelmed by the support of this fun event for Iowa Homeless Youth Centers. In the first two years of "THE 5K with a Des Moines flavor" we have enjoyed hosting nearly 700 total participants (and more than a dozen food trucks) who have helped us raise more than $10,000. 

On to the third annual Food Truck 5K. Once again, the event benefits Iowa Homeless Youth Centers. This time around, we are excited to bring the party to a new site. After two years at Valley View Aquatic Center, we're hosting the Food Truck 5K at The Foundry in the Valley Junction area of West Des Moines.

We hope you can join us September 30th for the first-ever event at The Foundry. Will you be part of our story in 2017?
