This 'Special Edition' Back The Blue - Ontario County, NY Fallen Police Officers 5K/10K/85 Mile Challenge will be honoring our fallen officers from communities in the Finger Lakes area of New York.
Do you have to complete the 5K, 10K and the 85 Mile Challenge?
No…You pick the race distance that suits you or your groups abilities!
**Reminder – It’s your race at your pace! You don’t have to complete any of these distances in one day…It’s not about how fast…It’s about finishing!
So how can the Run Fierce Team and all race participants help?
The Run Fierce team and all ‘Fallen Officers’ 5K, 10K and 85 Mile Challenge race participants will be helping the families of these ‘Fallen Officers’ by donating part of the proceeds of this race.
Why is the challenge 85 miles?
The average number of law enforcement/police officers killed in the line of duty each year is an astounding number…The average is 85 per year!
That’s 85 families that are impacted tremendously by their family member not returning home after work.
The organization for the Run Fierce Fallen Officers 5K/10K/85 Mile Challenge virtual race was chosen because of all they do to help rebuild the shattered lives of the survivors and co-workers affected by these line-of-duty deaths.
