Brookhaven Police Department hosting 5th annual Hot Pursuit 5k

Brookhaven GA, May 25, 2017- Registration is open for this year’s Brookhaven Hot Pursuit 5k. This year, event organizers will be deviating from the traditional morning start time of 8 a.m. and will be producing a nighttime glow run.

This year’s run will be held on Sept. 9 with a Tot Trot for youngsters taking place at 7:45 p.m. and the race kicking off at 8 p.m. This race is as an official Peachtree Road Race qualifier and also supports the Brookhaven Police Department’s Shop with a Badge initiative that takes place each December.

Shop with a Badge is an annual event in which law enforcement officers from throughout the north metro area take underprivileged children out shopping for Christmas presents.  This event is largely funded by proceeds from the Hot Pursuit race. “The annual Hot Pursuit 5k provides us with a great opportunity to interact with the community in which we serve and helps to make the Shop with a Badge initiative a reality,” Officer Carlos Nino said. “For some children, Shop with a Badge will be the only chance they get to both give and receive holiday gifts.”

The race route will start and end on Apple Valley Drive with parking in the rear lot of the Brookhaven MARTA station at 3360 Peachtree Rd.

Those wishing to take advantage of early registration pricing and a free race t-shirt should sign up before Aug. 31 to secure the $30 registration fee. Individuals who sign up after Aug. 31 up to race day will be charged $35 for registration. Online registration can be accessed at itsyourrace.com.
