Join us for the inaugural running of The Burke 5.74K on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 9:00am at East Jessamine Middle School.
This event is being held in Memory of Officer Burke Rhoads of the Nicholasville Police Department. We are honored to be able to have this 5.74K in remembrance of him. We are thankful for the FOP and Nicholasville Police Department for hosting this event. The community has shown such tremendous support for our family and the officers of NPD. We are grateful to be able to give back to the Fraternal Order of Police and the Nicholasville Police Department with the proceeds from the run that will support the community programs in Jessamine County and the City of Nicholasville.
WHY A 5.74K?
Simply put, Officer Burke Rhoads was a unique and rigorous individual and his badge number was 574. The Nicholasville Police Department retired his badge but it only seems fitting to bring it out of retirement to make an event as distinctive and challenging!
