The 12th Anniversary of the annual Kops for Kids Run/Walk & Roll is a family-friendly benefit race for Contra Costa Kops for Kids. Contra Costa Kops For Kids is a non-profit organization mostly comprised of active and retired law enforcement 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 2018 Run Walk & Roll will be used to support our youth mentoring program, Positive Mental Attitudes seminars (offered for free in Contra Costa County schools), and sports clinics.
The Contra Costa Kops For Kids Run/Walk & Roll features a 1 Mile, 5K and 10K race with a wheelchair division 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 categories in the wheelchair division. In addition, trophies are awarded to the fastest male and female runners in the 5K and 10K races.
Youth: Boys & Girls 12 & under and 13-19.
Adult: Male & Female 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
You can also sign up to run/walk/roll BOTH the 1 Mile and the 5K or 10K for an extra $10.00.
(PLEASE NOTE: if doing both the 1 Mile and the 5K or 10K 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 Active.com. You will receive bibs for both races at packet pick-up.)
This is a family-friendly race! All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate. Your entry fee includes a custom designed event T-shirt, goody bag, and post-race food & drink.
Professional chip timing, music & announcing by Brazen Racing.
Meet our special guest, Eddie Hart, Gold medal Olympic runner who will start off the races for us!
For our participants that are active/retired law enforcement or military, we also have a perpetual trophy that will be awarded to the law enforcement group or military unit with the most participants. Register your Law Enforcement group or Military Unit today!
There will be law enforcement recruiting booths, sponsor booths, and the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office will have one of their command vehicles to showcase.
Hope to see you there!
