Organiser's Description

The First Annual Hot Pursuit 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Catch-A-Cop will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023! This is a chip timed race starting and finishing at Doodle Park in Pickens, SC. The race will be ran on a Certified Course. 
The 1 mile Catch-A-Cop will be open to kids ages 8th grade and under. These participants will attempt to "catch a cop" and collect flags on a course that goes from the Doodle Park to Bruce Field. After the conclusion of their race, they will get into police cars and ride back to the Doodle park in a procession of police cars. 
ALL PROCEEDS from this race will go towards purchasing a wheelchair accessible swing to be placed at the Doodle Park. 
Youth Leadership Academy is charter middle school in Pickens, SC serving 288 students in grades 6-8. Each year, the students at YLA participate in a service project that will benefit the local community. In the past, students participated in a Burpeethon to raise funds for special needs children in the area. This year, the focus is on providing wheelchair accessible swings to the playground at the Doodle Park to benefit a wider range of people throughout the whole community.
