Sunday, September 12 | 8:30 a.m. | Centennial Park in Ellicott City

After a brief hiatus in 2020, we are excited to host our 30th annual Police Pace in September! We are planning a safe and family-friendly event in-person. This annual 5K race and 1-mile fun walk and run raises funds to support the needs of the Howard County Police Department that are not met through the county budget, including continuing education scholarships for officers, leadership training, community outreach initiatives and youth programs. In 2020, the foundation funded more than $30,000 in equipment and programs including support for the Youth Division. For more details, click here to visit the race website.
