JOIN THE 1ST RESPONDER CHALLENGE
The 1st Responder Challenge began with the Boston’s Run To Remember. Each year departments from across the globe field teams of 5 or more runners who compete for a cash prize to their own favorite charity. It was this challenge that lead the LAPD to invite the Boston team to produce the inaugural LA race in 2016.
Any 1st Responder department can field a team of 5 or more runners to compete in this challenge for the 1/2 marathon only. The runners must all be sworn 1st Responders on the day of the race. The times for the fastest five runners will be averaged to determine the three fastest teams. These teams will receive a cash donation to a charity of their choosing or for use within their department to better serve their community.
Each team member must register themselves individually – though if using a running club check or if a sponsor is paying the registration fee for your team – then print paper applications and each member can mail in with a note at top saying a check is coming from (name source). We will match the applications and the check as they arrive.
When registering be sure to click yes for “Active 1st Responder” and then enter your department name. Once 5 or more from your department are registered, we will create your 1st Responder Challenge team.
