HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg Police are hosting an event Saturday which will test you physically, while raising money for that department’s benevolent fund.

The second annual “Blue Line Challenge” is open to all police and non-law enforcement organizations.

It’s a 5K event, with about a dozen obstacles.

It starts at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Hattiesburg Police and Fire Training Academy.

“We have a 5K, a regular run, we have a 5K obstacle, you can run that obstacle course,” said Ryan Moore, public information officer for the Hattiesburg Police Department. “Then, we have the tactical version of it, that tactical version is those folks are going to come in here and they’re going to wear a vest, it’s going to be a weighted vest.”

You can register on site before the event Saturday or by going online to the Hattiesburg Police Facebook page.
