The Hot Pursuit 5K Run will be held on September 9, 2017 in the City of Brookhaven. The run includes a 5K and Tot Trot. The race starts on Peachtree Road near Dresden Drive at 8:00 P.M. and promises to be a great time for all ages and abilities.
The route will take participants down Dresden Drive before winding through the scenic Ashford Park neighborhood. The course will be staffed by volunteers to provide assistance to runners. The Brookhaven Police Department will handle traffic control and will be at all intersections.
The Hot Pursuit 5K will be electronically timed for fast, accurate results. The race will conclude with a postrace ceremony in which awards will be presented in multiple categories and age groups. All Proceeds Will Be Used to Support the Brookhaven Police Department’s “Shop with a Badge” Christmas Program The Shop with a Badge or similarly named programs are held in numerous law enforcement agencies across the country. All funds raised through race registration fees, donations and corporate sponsorships will be divided up equally amongst our city’s underprivileged children to use at Target. The children will be escorted by participating police officers, sheriff’s deputies, troopers and various other first responders to pick out much needed items and maybe a toy or two. Your sponsorship is deeply appreciated and will bring a smile to a child’s face as they are able to experience the joy of opening gifts on Christmas morning.
