About This Activity

The 9th Annual Kops for Kids Run/Walk/Wheelchair Race is a family-friendly benefit race for Contra Costa Kops for Kids.  Contra Costa Kops For Kids is a not for profit organization of local active and retired police officers who work in our community to help prevent violence, drug abuse, gangs, and juvenile delinquency in Contra Costa County by reaching out to at-risk youth.  All proceeds from the 2015 Run/Walk/Wheelchair Races go to support our programs for at-risk youth.

The Run/Walk/Wheelchair Races feature a 1 Mile, 5K and 10K  race with wheelchair divisions within each race distance.  Medals are awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male & female winners in each age category in each race and 2 age catagories in   wheelchair division.  In addition, trophies & prizes are awarded to the fastest male and female runners in the 5K and 10K races and gift cards will be awarded for the top 3 finishers (male or female) in the 1 Mile.  

You can also sign up to run/walk/roll BOTH the 1 Mile and the 5K or 10K for an extra $5.00 to your entry fee.  (if doing both the Mile and the 5K or 10K, please note that you will receive a confirmation email for just the 5K or 10K with the 1 Mile race as an additional purchase.  We will off-line register you for the 1 Mile to avoid any confusion with You will receive bibs for both races at packet pick-up.  You can also add the Mile race for $5.00 more on Race Day.
