INDEPENDENCE, Ky. - Have you ever wondered what it might be like to run from police? Well, Saturday some people can find out.
The Independence police department is holding its "Fleeing Felon Obstacle Course Run" at Lincoln Ridge park Saturday, with "felons" starting their run every 15 minutes.
The three-mile obstacle course equates what it might be like to run from police. Runners endure approximately 14 obstacles like climbing over walls and even sliding down a giant slip-and-slide-like tarp into a pond.
The event has raised about $2,000 for Redwood Learning Center and the Independence F.O.P.
"It's kinda like you're running from police," said Sgt. Scott Smith with the Independence police department. "So you'll jump cars, we actually have picnic tables that are stacked 3 or 4 high they have to climb over, several walls, different rope bridges, you have to run down through the creek. It's very strenuous because it's a lot of hills."
Anybody interested running the course can register until 7 p.m. Saturday.
