The Noblesville Fraternal Order of Police and the Noblesville Police Auxiliary are again holding its Run With the Cops 5K Fun Run after a successful inaugural year in 2018.

The event will serve as the FOP and auxiliary’s final celebration for National Police Week (May 12-18) at Forest Park. The event is May 18.

Participants will run or walk a 5K course on Forest Park’s trails, with appearances by Noblesville’s first responders and K-9 officers. The course will begin outside of Shelter 5 and travel through the trails encompassing the park. The race will finish back at the park.

Proceeds will benefit Noblesville FOP programs, including Shop with a Cop, and support the Noblesville Police Explorers program at Noblesville High School. The event also will highlight Noblesville Police Dept. staff.

“The Noblesville FOP Lodge 198 is proud to highlight the members of our Noblesville Police Dept. and activate our community members in support of National Police Week,” said Sgt. Jamie Aloisio, president of Noblesville FOP Lodge 198. “We look forward to a great event.”

The 5K, an officially timed event, will begin at 8:30 a.m. with packet pick-up starting at 7 a.m. at Shelter 5 in Forest Park.  Along with the 5K, participants and families will have the opportunity to “Race a K9” in a 100-yard dash, where they will strive to beat the NPD’s fastest four-legged officers. All finishers will receive a commemorative Run with the Cops medal and T-shirt.
