rrtr2014 register

The Run for the Badge is a fully-supported, timed 5K run on a closed course taking place Saturday, October 13. The Run begins at 9:00 am just north of the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. On-line registration is closed; however, you may register on site on October 13th.

Note, although the Metro's Judiciary Square (Red Line) station is conveniently located at the Memorial, the trains don't start operating until 7:00AM on Saturdays.

This will be an incredible day for us to honor the sacrifice and celebrate the service of America’s law enforcement officers. While you aren't required to fundraise for this event, we highly encourage you to do so.
