If you think you can run faster than the law find out for sure at the first ever "Outrun the Police 5K Run and Fun Walk" Sunday, Sept. 15th, in Lowell, sponsored by the Lowell Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 186. Lowell Police Cpl. Robert Hornickel, FOP presidents says " basically there is going to be active duty officers out there running the race and anybody who can beat the fastest cop will get a metal." Cpl. Hornickel says, "it's basically a fundraiser to financially get the FOP's holiday toy drive started as well as putting money toward an FOP Scholarship every year for a Lowell High School student or two."
He says participants can preregister online anytime with preregistered runners receiving a T-shirt, while supplies last. The preregistration fee is $25 and $35 day of the race.
