Sgt. Bertram Memorial 5K-9

703 Main Street
Charlestown, IN US 47111

Sgt. Benton Bertram was a 10 year Veteran of the Charlestown Police Department who died tragically on December 12th 2018 while pursuing a suspect in a stolen car.  Sgt. Bertram was a devoted K9 Officer who loved both of his 4 legged partners, first K9 Kubo then K9 Franco.  Although we lost Sgt. Bertram that night we will forever keep him in our hearts and our minds.  The Sgt. Bertram Memorial 5K-9 is one of the ways we honor Sgt. Bertram and his love for dogs.  We encourage our 5K participants to run with their dogs, thus making it a 5K-9.  


Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic things have changed for this year's race.  The 2020 Sgt. Bertram Memorial 5K-9 will be a virtual race.  Participants will register online then have a full week to complete their race.  Once completed participants will upload their time and the winners will be announced on Saturday October 17th at 5:00 PM EST.
