In its 3rd year, this is a fun 5K that benefits the Melbourne Police Department’s Specialty Teams K-9, Dive, SWAT and Crisis Negotiation. Held at Wickham Park in Melbourne. With a nice twist, you sign up as a cop or a robber! See how many robbers you can catch or see if you can not get caught! NEW this year, the first 3 cops that catches a robber and grabs their flag, will receive a prize. Be sure you don’t let the robber catch back up and grab their flag back!!
