Join us for the Blue Line Challenge, a 5K obstacle race benefiting the Hattiesburg Police Department's Benevolent Fund.
This race is a family-friendly event that will celebrate the end of National Police Week, while honoring the risk our officers take on a daily basis and remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
The 5K Obstacle Course will feature a 5K route with five stations that include body-weighted and object-weighted physical tests of fitness.
Obstacle #7: Burpees, shortly before a sprint to the finish.
Participants can choose to sign up for the 5K with obstacles, the 5K only or upgrade the experience by signing up for the tactical division for either race. A fun run/walk is also an option.
The tactical division simply means you choose to race while wearing tactical gear of some sort (SWAT gear, FIRE turnout gear, tactical vest with plates, etc.).
After all runs are complete, we invite you to enjoy food and entertainment at the post-race event party!

We expect our events to happen rain or shine. No one, including the Race Director, wants to make changes to an event on race day. However, the safety of our participants is of paramount concern. In the event of adverse weather conditions, the Race Director, in communication with the local law enforcement and the city, may delay the event, cancel the event, or make changes to the race course.
The event may be delayed or canceled due to Tornado Warning, Tornado Watch, Thunderstorm, Heavy Rain, or any other extreme weather condition. Light to moderate rain is not considered an Adverse Weather Condition.
If the event is canceled, we will notify participants via email, the race website and social media. Participants will be notified via email where they can pick up their race packets if they have not already done so.
As stated in the Registration Policies, refunds are not issued for events canceled for Adverse Weather Conditions as the funds for the event have already been spent in preparation for race day.This event may be canceled in
