5K - Law Enforcement Virtual

$25 Registration ends October 3, 2020 at 11:59pm CDT
SPECIAL COVID19 UPDATE - 8/4/20 *** We are now a Virtual Event

After much discussion and deliberation, the decision was made that the Blessed are the Peacemakers 5k is now a VIRTUAL event. With the Covid19 numbers as high as they have been and the added restrictions being placed on our state, we feel this is the best and safest option for this year.

If you have already registered,

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new virtual events, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You allow us to keep your registration fees and apply toward purchasing additional vests for our officers. We thank you for your generosity and look forward to seeing you nest year.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

Description

If you elect to participate in our first (and hopefully only) virtual event, you can select a race route of your choice (outdoors).  The dates for your VIRTUAL run/walk will be announced soon. You will receive email updates as we know more information. 


Prior to race week (via email), we will provide all the information you need beforehand to download the free race app to your smartphone (which you must carry while you run/walk). After you click start to begin your race, the app will send progress updates (elapsed time and pace, etc.) to your phone at regular intervals, then automatically record your data when you complete the proper distance and cross your virtual finish line. We will still have t-shirts and will have a pickup day(s) in Tupelo and we also can mail your shirts to you. 


Registration is still OPEN for this year's virtual race and will remain at $25.00. Please keep in mind this is a fundraiser and we use all money to purchase much needed body armor for our local agencies so we still need your help!! Sponsorships are still being taken as we will still have t-shirts printed. We are also accepting silent auction gifts.


Please know this was a decision we did not take lightly and it has weighed very heavily on our hearts. We will miss being together and remembering and honoring our heroes as a group. We hope that this option makes it possible for others throughout the state and nation to now be able to participate from their hometown and show their support so please share the link with all of your friends near and far.

 

Blessed Are The Peacemakers 5k 2020

The Wives of Warriors (WOW) will be hosting their 6th Annual 5k to remember All Fallen Officers and honor All Law Enforcement heroes that currently serve. Special Thanks to the Tupelo Running Club for directing and assisting with our race. 

W.O.W. is a group of ladies that share a common thread: we are proud, we are strong, and we love a law enforcement officer. 

We will be honoring and remembering our thin blue line heroes with a 5k that you will remember forever. All monies raised will stay within the state of Mississippi to purchase body armor (bullet proof vests) for departments that cannot afford to purchase them and to help officers and their families in need, all in memory of Sgt. Gale Stauffer and Mst. Sgt. John Collum. In 2015 we were able to purchase vests for 16 officers. In 2016 we were able to purchase vests for 34 officers. In 2017 we purchased vests for 39 officers. In 2018 we purchased vests for 25 officers and hope to purchase even more this year! We hope to have as wonderful an event this year as we did last September. Be on the look out for more information as we plan and prepare! 

This race is a special event that you don’t want to miss!
