The 1st Responder Challenge, formerly the Law Enforcement Challenge began with the Boston’s Run To Remember. Each year departments from across the globe field teams of 3 or more runners who compete in the Half Marathon or 5 Miler for a cash prize to their own favorite charity.

The Challenge


Any 1st Responder department can field a team of 3 or more runners to compete in this challenge for either the Half Marathon or the 5 Miler. The runners must all be sworn, active officers on the day of the race. The times for the fastest 3 runners will be averaged to determine the three fastest teams. Both the Half Marathon and 5 Miler will be scored individually as two seperate challenges. These teams will receive a cash donation to a charity of their choosing or for use within their department station to better serve their community.


Each team member must register themselves individually via the 1st Responder Challenge category on the registration page. When registering be sure to click enter your department name and your team name.
