Run To Remember Los Angeles is proud to bring to you the Uniform Challenge.
Run To Remember Uniform Running Team was formed in early 2017 by a group of law enforcement officers from around the country who decided to come together for a common purpose: enduring 26.2 miles of pain to raise awareness, promote fitness, engage the community, and raise funds for the families of fallen officers. Active and retired officers run marathons in full duty uniform: Uniform, bullet proof vest, gun belt, and footwear. An additional 25 pounds to carry through the 26.2 miles.
Every year dozens of brave men and women in law enforcement pay the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the communities they serve and love. They run so they will not be forgotten. There is a belief that an officer dies twice. Once it is their body dying and second it is their memory dying. That is why we, as a nation, have memorials with names, and ceremonies, and photos. While we couldn’t prevent their first death, we will protect the fallen from the second death. They will be REMEMBERED!
The Uniform Challenge is open to law enforcement officers and fire fighters, active and retired. Officers will run, or march in full duty uniform for 5k, 10k or 13.1 miles.
Participants will have the honor of carrying a blue line flag (provided) to commemorate one of the 145 fallen officers in the United States in 2018, or a red line flag (provided) to honor the 93 fallen firefighters.
The flags will be presented to the families of the fallen later in 2019.
