About This Activity

Welcome!

Join us for the 3rd Annual Partners for Life Police Appreciation Run / Walk on Sunday, May 5 to recognize National Police Appreciation Week.

Dedicated to the fallen officers in St. Petersburg in 2011, we invite athletes and supporters to show appreciation to our officers by participating in the:
• 6:59 am K-9 Officer Jeff Yaslowitz 10K Race / Walk
• 8:30 am Sergeant Tom Baitinger 5K Race / Walk
• 9:00 am Officer Dave Crawford 1 Mile Walk

These events were established by Lorraine Yaslowitz in memory of Jeff, Tom, and Dave.

Lorraine and Jeff Yaslowitz often ran together and competed at local races. That, combined with Lorraine's desire to memorialize Jeff in a positive way, to thank the Tampa Bay community for their support during those tragedies, and to thank police officers everywhere, motivated Lorraine to create this race.

ALL proceeds after direct expenses from the race will be provided to the Partners for Life Foundation, Inc. created by Lorraine Yaslowitz to support families who lose innocent loved ones due to senseless acts of violence.

Of all the fundraisers / memorials that have taken place, this was the first that Lorraine created on her own to remember her husband Jeff and his fellow police officers, Tom and Dave.

All courses are in downtown St. Petersburg and will feature the dowtown waterfront and other unique aspects of St. Petersburg. They are mostly flat and aesthetically varied.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Florida's weather in early-May should be mild, average low is 71, so please make sure you are properly hydrated.

USATF SANCTIONED
All our races are sanctioned and insured through USATF for runners, joggers, and walkers ONLY. Registered walkers with strollers will be allowed to walk each of our courses, starting 2 minutes after each race. Athletes with strollers are NOT allowed to start at the same time as any of the timed races.

HEADPHONES AND IPODS
Headphones of any type are now allowed at USATF sanctioned events, but are discouraged due to safety concerns, not only during the actual race, but as importantly, while athletes are training in an uncontrolled environment. Individual races may impose their own regulations, but we don’t, as it would be nearly impossible to enforce.

FITNESS WALKERS
Are welcome in all of our events and encouraged to participate. Walkers in our 10K and 5K Race expecting to finish slower than a 20-minute per mile pace may be asked to walk on the sidewalks so that roads can re-open to traffic.

Custom awards for M/F overall (three deep), masters (40+) champion and grandmasters (50+) champion.
