About This Activity

The Nightbeat 5k Run/Walk and 2 Mile Walk are events as fundraisers for the Rochester/Olmsted County Law Enforcement Memorial Association to build a memorial for law enforcement officers, detention and corrections officers who have either died or were killed in the line of duty throughout SE Minnesota history.

The course consists of a starting and finishing lap of Soldiers Field track then a lap around Soldiers Field Park.  Runners and Walkers participating in the 5k will run out and back on the trail system to near the Government Center and the 2 Mile Walk will make two full laps of Soldiers Field Park.

Event details and schedule

This Nightbeat event is to raise awareness of a need for a law enforcement memorial to honor fallen officers from southeast Minnesota.  Officers and deputies from agencies throughout SE Minnesota will particpate in a display of public safety equipment, scavenger hunt for kids, and a K9 demonstration, and other games and activities.
