RACE DAY & RUNNER INFO

HONORING AND REMEMBERING ALL FALLEN OFFICERS

The mission of the Officer Eric J Williams Memorial 5k Race is to have fun and raise money to award scholarships to students, criminal justice majors, and law enforcement programs. Also, we have a pre-run ceremony to honor and remember the fallen correctional officers who died in the line of duty, and pay tribute to all law enforcement personnel and first responders who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.

Each participant is asked to designate a college, trade school, or police academy of their choice, and a drawing is then held by the race committee and the institution(s) receiving the scholarship awards are picked.

Here are some quick facts about the race:

  • Open to runners and walkers of all ages
  • Kid friendly and dog friendly
  • Each participant receives a cool t-shirt
  • Rain or shine event
  • Registration is online or in-person at the race site before the race begins
  • Refreshments and snacks
  • Men and women – first, second, and third place winners receive a medal
  • Emergency personnel and equipment are on site

CHECK OUT OUR CHALLENGING 5K COURSE

Our course has been said to be one of the most challenging 5k courses in Luzerne County and is well known for its considerable inclines. Runners come from all over NEPA to experience this challenging course, and to honor and pay tribute to fallen officers. It’s a back and forth course, so the race starts and ends near the gymnasium at Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke, PA, where runners will begin by running downhill and circle around the campus. Participants finish the race by having to kick it into high gear in order to conquer the steepest hill on campus and cross the finish line, where crowds standby to help cheer you on.
