Message from Dispatch:
The events unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri have disrupted our ability to promote and host our run scheduled for September 6 at RFK Stadium. With compassion for those involved, we announce its cancellation.
The Cops and Robbers Run started out as a fun idea for a new type of 5K. Our goal from the beginning has been to create an event that would be enjoyable for everyday runners, and fun for those who don't normally run. It's been a work in progress for over a year and a half, and has involved the work of a number of people and organizations to make it happen.
Our charity partner, the DC Police Foundation, has been a main motivation in making the run a success. They work with DC schools, businesses and the MPD to make the city a safer place for all to live, work and visit.
If you signed up for Cops and Robbers Run, you will receive a refund. If you'd like to learn more about future event concepts, please enter your email address below.
