About This Activity

The Race for the Fallen 5K GLOW RUN is a night time family-fun race for participants of all ages & speeds!

The Police Benevolent Foundation’s Race for the Fallen (R4TF) race series was created to honor the hardworking and dedicated members of our law enforcement community who risk their lives to protect our cities. These officers are men and women who have taken an oath to “protect and serve” the local citizens and their communities. The R4TF 5K GLOW RUN event recognizes the contributions and sacrifices made by not only the officers, but also their families.
