About This Activity

**UPDATE: The 2020 Run With Shears 5k will be VIRTUAL! Participants will have the option to run their 5k from September 5th - 30th. Choose to register and run the official course at any time using the RaceJoy App (includes Canal course map) or run anywhere you wish with or without the RaceJoy App.

Next to the Indiana Statehouse, firefighters and police officers from across the state who gave their lives in the line of duty are memorialized. Join fellow EMS professionals to create an addition to this memorial for emergency medical technicians and paramedics who lost their lives serving our communities. Help us continue to raise funds for this project and kick-off National EMS Week by joining us for the fifth annual Run With Shears on September 5, 2020. This event is proudly hosted by the Indiana EMS Memorial Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) charity. We are one of the only EMS 5k races in the United States and annually host hundreds of runners, walkers, and EMS professionals from across the Midwest. Runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome to participate in this annual event along the scenic Downtown Canal in the heart of Indianapolis. EMS professionals and competitive runners alike will love our fast and flat USATF sanctioned course with elite awards, medals, and shirts. Children, and strollers are also welcome.
Again this year we’ve added the Kid’s 911 Yard Dash. Bring the kid’s and get them moving. You may register your kid for $5. Kids participating will receive a medal.
