The KAZOO AREA FOOT CHASE is a 3.5-mile fun run patterned after a police foot chase in pursuit of a fleeing suspect.  This is an unconventional course that includes fences, fields, business districts, school grounds, neighborhoods, and even buildings before reaching the finish line. “Witnesses” located along the route give the only clues where to go next.  The course is not certified, but the event is timed.  Awards to the top 2 times in each age category (male/female).  Door prizes are awarded to runners who recover “contraband” found along the way.  Additional prize to the first police/corrections officer or dispatcher (ID required) across the finish line.


A 1-mile barrier-free walking event is also offered.  This event simulates an officer assigned to foot patrol.  Walkers will be given BOL (Be on the Lookout) information on “wanted persons” in the area.  Correctly identifying and apprehending a “wanted person” earns the first few keen-eyed foot patrol officers a prize.

This event is open to all ages and has been a hit with younger participants

The service guide soaks my tears; another cop is down. Cut too short were his years; I bow my head and frown. Why was this for one who served; I guess I’ll never know. So now support we give his kin before we let them go. He did not give his life in vain; he lived it value plus. His family now is our concern, as he was one of us.--- David Ostrem
