Any 1st Responder department can field a team of 5 or more runners to compete in this challenge for the 1/2 marathon only. The runners must all be sworn, active officers on the day of the race. The times for the fastest five runners will be averaged to determine the three fastest teams. 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 – though if using a running club check or if a sponsor is paying the registration fee for your team – then print paper applications and each member can mail in with a note at top saying a check is coming from (name source). We will match the applications and the check as they arrive.
When registering be sure to click yes for “1st Responder” and then enter your department name and your team name.
