Cops & Robbers 5k is back on Sunday, November 3!
Can you outrun the police? Give it a try and register HERE.
Hosted by the Ridgefield Police Benevolent Association, this unique 5k is fun for the whole family. The runners get a 3-minute head start, then officers from the Ridgefield Police Department will get their turn to try and pass as many runners as they can.
For every runner "caught" (passed) by each officer, the RPBA will give $1 to the Women's Center of Greater Danbury. Last year, the officers collectively passed almost 500 people!
The multi-surface course will start and end at the Ridgefield Playhouse, and wind its way through streets, around buildings, across fields, through wooded trails, up the Ridgefield Rail Trail, and back to the Playhouse.
You won't want to miss this one. Many of the officers are already in training...look for their profiles coming in October. Did you know the Women's Center of Greater Danbury serves 13 towns including Ridgefield, and that all of their programming is FREE? What a tremendous asset to have in our own backyard.
