Police Week 5k

May 9, 2020

Join more than 2,000 runners and walkers in Washington D.C. at the National Police Week 5K, hosted by the Officer Down Memorial Page, to kick off Police Week as we run to remember the more than 23,000 fallen law enforcement officers who have given their lives in the line of duty in U.S. history.
Proceeds benefit the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), two organizations that honor fallen officers and provide support to their survivors. Come out and join us for this inspirational event!

About ODMP

The Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring America’s fallen law enforcement heroes. As the largest law enforcement memorial in the United States, ODMP preserves the memories of 23,000+ fallen officers in its online memorial and reflection pages.
ODMP also honors fallen K9 officers, provides free resources to law enforcement agencies, and works to keep cop killers behind bars through its No Parole program. The ODMP database tracks LODD statistics in the US back to 1776, enabling the law enforcement community to analyze trends and patterns in an effort to improve officer safety.


Are strollers permitted?

Yes, strollers are welcome. We do ask that if you plan on pushing a stroller you start towards the rear of the crowd at the starting line to avoid being in the way of faster runners.

Can I walk?

Absolutely! The National Police Week 5K is open to both runners and walkers.

Can children participate?

Yes. We encourage you to bring your children. Children who can complete the course on their own must register. You do not need to register children in strollers. There will be special medals for all children who participate.

Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are welcome provided you follow all District of Columbia laws pertaining to animals (ie, leash laws and waste disposal). If you would like your dog to have a memorial bib, you must pay the regular registration fee.

Is there a shorter course?

There is not an “official” shorter course. However, if you do not believe you will be able to finish the entire 5K in less than 45 minutes you may may inquire about alternate shorter courses. You can view the course map here.

Is there a time limit?

Due to street closure time limits, we ask that if you can’t complete the course in 45 minutes or less that you use the “unofficial” shorter course (refer to the previous question).

Is there a bag check?

Yes, there is a bag check adjacent to the race day packet pickup tables. The National Police Week 5K cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items from the bag check.
