The Ridgefield Police Department will host its annual Cops and Robbers 5K at the Ridgefield Playhouse on East Ridge Road Sunday, Nov. 3.

The race is set to begin at 7:30 a.m. and its proceeds will go toward benefiting the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury.

Runners get a three-minute head start, and Ridgefield police officers follow. For every runner the officers collectively “catch,” the Police Benevolent Association will donate $1 to the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury.

This is a multi-surface course. Runners will run on roads, parking lots, stairs, fields, wooded trails, and the Rail Trail.
