Special Olympics Slammer
Literally a “Run from the Cops”—law enforcement will be staged throughout the course “encouraging” participants to finish in under 30-minutes to avoid being corralled and placed in the Special Olympics Slammer! Those not finishing in under 30-minutes will be photographed and booked for not outrunning the cops!
