This is not a race, this is a charity fun run.
Team Blueline is a non-profit 501(c) organization that raises support for the families of fallen and injured law enforcement. The members of the Team Blue race team compete in endurance events to raise additional support and to run in honor of those fallen officers. We now extend this same opportunity to members of our community to join us in honor runs to honor the memories of fallen law enforcement.
This run is approximately 14.5 miles, and will start at the Maryville Police Department, onto the Glen Carbon Police Department, then to the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville Police Department, Madison County Sheriff's Office and then finish at the Edwardsville Police Department (333 South Main Street, Edwardsville, IL, 62025). The run will be on roads with large shoulders/sidewalks and Madison County Bike Trails. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RUN THE ENTIRE ROUTE. We will have support vehicles to shuttle people to different police departments if they need a break, or want to stop early. We will run in groups of similar pace, so there will be a group for you! These groups will be 5-10 to comply with social distancing as well.
There will be food at the finish line including bbq pulled pork, chips, drinks, etc. Your entry will also get you a commemorative Team Blueline Metro East Honor Run T-shirt as well. All of your registration will go to Team Blueline for the sole purpose of assisting the families of fallen law enforcement.
Feel free to email me with any questions you may have, thanks and hope to see you there for a great time!
