MANCHESTER, NH – Lace up your sneakers and get ready to hit the pavement! The 14th Annual Footrace for the Fallen is just around the corner. This year, however, we had to think outside the box and do things a little differently. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and safety concerns for our race participants, the Manchester Police Athletic League has decided to make the 2020 race a “virtual” event. Although you will run on your own, we will still be honoring the memories of those heroes lost in the line of duty TOGETHER.

Help us celebrate our lost heroes, as well as our wonderful sponsors, and race participants who come together to lift up our community’s at-risk youth. Experience our first ever drive through bib pick-up. Take a slow drive through the Manchester Police Department’s lot any time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 3, 2020. You will be greeted by many friendly faces who will provide you with everything you need from remembrances and giveaways to photo opportunities. It is a race kick-off that can only be brought to you by the Manchester Police Department and the Police Athletic League.
