Run with us in 2020
Join us in DC or run virtually from anywhere in the world
Registration is now open! 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. Join us for this inspirational event!
RUN IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
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.
Run with family and friends as a team and make this event even more meaningful! During the registration process, you can create a team or join an existing team. Team finish times are tracked and prizes are available.
Here are the rules:
- Only one team manager should be listed per team.
- An individual can only be listed on one team.
- Teams must have a minimum of three athletes.
- The lowest average time will determine the team placings.
- Teams finishing with fewer than three registered athletes will not be scored.
We highly recommend you pick up your race bib and packet the day before the 5K, Friday, May 8th at Pacers in Clarendon, VA in order to avoid long lines on the morning of the race. You must have an ID for each packet you want to pick up.
If you raised $100 or more in donations for last year’s NPW5K and earned FREE REGISTRATION you will receive an email with a one-time use promo code to use at registration during the first half of January. Keep an eye on your inbox.
If you can’t be in Washington D.C. for Police Week this year, join hundreds of runners on our Virtual NPW5K team and support this event from anywhere in the world! In past years we’ve had individual runners and teams from all over the world: from Alaska to Rome and from Baghdad to Thailand.
Simply choose the Virtual NPW5K option during registration and run to honor fallen law enforcement heroes from anywhere in the world!
By registering for the Virtual NPW5K, you make a commitment to yourself that you’ll run or walk at least 5K wherever you are on Saturday, May 9, 2020 in honor of fallen law enforcement.
If you register as Virtual Runner after April 30th, please note you may not get your NPW5K shirt in time for race day.
PROJECT ACTIVE ARMOR
At registration you can identify yourself as a Project Active Armor participant. Project Active Armor is an initiative created by our friends at Law Enforcement United in 2013. PAA participants complete events like the National Police Week 5K or the Road to Hope bicycle ride wearing a ballistic vest in order to demonstrate that there’s never a good reason NOT to wear your vest. We’re partnering with Project Active Armor again this year and will have an NPW5K PAA patch available before the race kicks off for everyone who plans to run the 5K in their vest.
Please contact us if you have any questions at 5K@odmp.org
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 1791, enabling the law enforcement community to analyze trends and patterns in an effort to improve officer safety.
