You can run with the law on Sunday.
About 2,700 runners are expected to race in the Winnipeg Police Service ninth annual half marathon and two-person relay in support of Cops For Cancer (Winnipeg Iron Cops) program.
The event will start at 8 a.m. just east of the Assiniboine Park footbridge after a moment of silence to remember the tragic events at the Boston Marathon last month. The second wave of runners will start at 8:30 a.m.
Iron Cops is part of the Cops For Cancer program that has raised funds for the Canadian Cancer Society since 1994. The Winnipeg Iron Cops chapter has rraised about $860,000 since 2000, including about $690,000 since the inception of the WPS Half Marathon.
The Winnipeg Police Service’s helicopter AIR1 will be on site at the Assiniboine Park for public viewing, weather permitting.
Members of the public are invited to a pancake breakfast at the race site by donating to the Canadian Cancer Society and to cheer runners along the route or finish line.
