THE 2020 NATIONAL POLICE WEEK 5K IS NOW FULLY VIRTUAL IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE CDC AND OTHER PUBLIC HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS.
Run with us in 2020
Run or row 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!
Many municipalities across the country are making plans to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus, including Washington D.C., and we are closely monitoring the situation as it pertains to the NPW5K. Current recommendations apply to events scheduled through March 31st. In the event that the Health Department in the city of Washington D.C. extends the recommendation regarding large gatherings, and the NPW5K is unable to be held in person, all registered runners for the on-site race will be converted to virtual runners and shirts, bibs, and packet contents will be shipped to all registrants prior to May 9th.
RUN (OR ROW) VIRTUALLY
Join hundreds of people on our Virtual NPW5K team and support this event from anywhere in the world! In past years we’ve had individuals and teams from all over the world: from Alaska to Rome and from Baghdad to Thailand.
NEW—Our virtual NPW5K has expanded this year to include a rowing option as well!
Simply choose the Virtual NPW5K option during registration and run OR row 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, walk or row at least 5K wherever you are on Saturday, May 9, 2020 in honor of fallen law enforcement.
If you register as Virtual Runner or Rower 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 24,000+ 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.
