The Charlotte’s Finest Legacy Foundation regretfully announces that in light of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone our Thin Blue Line Run. The new date is October 17, 2020.

Come out to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and Fire Training Academy this November and join us for the Tenth Annual Thin Blue Line Run! Experience where CMPD’s Police recruits train and be like a recruit for the day! Check out the academy grounds and run where Charlotte’s Finest become police officers. This is a 5K Run/Ruck/Walk.

Back by popular demand, the "Ruck Divisions". Rucking is a walking/running event with a weighted backpack. Weight of backpack is determined upon your body weight. Thin Blue Line Run Staff will ensure you have the proper weight in your backpack, but the staff will not be providing backpacks or weights. The participants must bring their own backpacks and weights

Here are the weight requirements for your backpack:

If You Are Under 150 lbs.

If You Are 150 lbs. and Over


There is also a FREE kids run. You can purchase a T-shirt for $10.

Packet Pick Up: Only on race day at the race venue, from 7:30-8:30am.

Participants are guaranteed a t-shirt if registered by October 1.
