Sunday, October 15, I participated in the Norwell Police Department K-9 5k. The proceeds helped fund and start up a Norwell Police K-9 department. The money will be used to pay for the cost of the dog, and purchase all the equipment associated with the K-9 program. There was also a fun run for the young kids.
I arrived in Norwell at 8:30am to pick up my bib and running shirt.
The race started and finished at the Norwell Police Station. At 9:00am, the race started. There was about 150 runners participating in the event. The course travelled through the quiet suburbs of Norwell.
It was a bit foggy and the temperature was 65 degrees at the time of the run, yet it was a nice morning for a run. The 5k was nice, mostly flat with one very small hill at mile 2.
After the race, the Norwell Police Department put on a K9 demonstration and hosted an open house at the Police and Fire Station for the kids.
