LETR Commemorative Run
The Illinois LETR would like to invite you to join us the morning of July 20, 2018 for the Special Olympics 50th Anniversary Torch Run Commemorative Run taking place in Chicago, IL. This 4 mile run will take place on Chicago Park District’s bike path that runs along Lake Michigan in downtown Chicago passes landmarks such as the Chicago Police Memorial, McCormack Place and a number of scenic beaches and harbors. Finally, the Commemorative Run will conclude by participants having the opportunity to run through Soldier Field as we deliver the Flame of Hope to the Eternal Flame ceremony.
Registration for the LETR Commemorative Run is open to law enforcement, Special Olympics athletes and the public. Registration is $75 and all participants will receive a Commemorative Run Shirt. Participants can choose to run the entire 4 mile route or join us for the last 2 miles (approximate). The commemorative Torch Run is a structured run similar to the Law Enforcement Torch Run Final Leg. Participants will run in formation, the pace will be a 15 minute mile (4 miles per hour) and will be led by a law enforcement officer and Special Olympics athlete carrying the Flame of Hope.
