Saturday July 14th, 2012 the inaugural Run From the Cops 5k Charity Fun Run kickced off at straight up midnight at Gold's Gym in Kennewick. 310 runners and 1 newlywed couple showed up to raise money for the Special Olympics of Washington State. A charity event tied into the Law Enforcement Torch Run event to raise money for Special Olympics locally.

The brain child behind this unique event is the same guy that heads up putting together the annual Polar Plunge, Kennewick Police Sergeant Randy Maynard. Not only did Randy and the rest of the volunteers put together a great event most of them competed in the fun run as well. Check out the great photos below taken by Randy's wife and mark your calendar for next year so you can take part in the 2nd annual event.
