This is a difficult challenge! You should be training in duty gear prior to the race. You should be able to run a half-marathon in regular clothes in about 2 hours. We will be running as a group at about an 11 minute per mile pace.
We need at least 125 law enforcement officers and at least 93 firefighters for the challenge. You will have the privilege and honor of carrying a blue line or red line flag (provided) with the name of a fallen brother or sister. That flag will be given to the family of the fallen with the message that the flag was carried in honor of their loved one.
