  I Ran From the Cops and SWAT Challenge

The city of Centralia welcomes the beginning of summer and the fourth of July with a large celebration called Summer Fest, held on July 4th each year.

Festivities begin in Borst Park with a pancake feed, fishing derby, and games for kids. A parade is held in downtown Centralia during afternoon hours. The celebration ends with a demolition derby and fireworks display at Southwest Washington Fairgrounds.

To kick-off Summer Fest, the Centralia Police Officer's Association holds two events: I Ran from the COPS and the SWAT Challenge. They raise funds for community support such as scholarships and Shop with a Cop programs.

I Ran from the Cops is a flat, fast 8K run. Lead the chase or relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings by participating in the 1.5K health walk-jog (families are encouraged to join).

This event is for everyone. Fee includes a t-shirt for all participants (SWAT Challenge t-shirts are limited, so register early).

There are Special Awards for the heroes!

SWAT Challenge Fitness Test
 
Event 1: Pursuit/Rescue Climb
The Pursuit/Rescue Climb consists of two pull ups with the hands facing outwards.  The pullups will start from a dead hang position.  The student will be wearing a tactical vest with 25 lbs of weight in it.  The chin must cross over the bar and the candidate must return to the dead hang position before repeating.
 
Event2:  Tactical Obstacle Course
Wearing work out clothing, the candidate must complete an 880 yard course consisting of two laps and three job related tasks on a 440 yard oval running track.  At the 220 and 260 yard marks, the candidate must negotiate a forty yard running weave consisting of nine cones placed five yards apart, with a lateral dispersion of five yards.  Candidates must run to the left of the cones positioned on the inside of the track and to the right of the cones positioned on the outside of the track.
 
At the 440 yard mark, the candidate must drag a supine victim ten yards to safety.  The candidate must complete the drag with no assistance from the victim.  The victim should weigh between 175 and 225 lbs attired in his/her SWAT body armor and equipment.  Only the victim’s feet may contact the track during the drag.
 
At the 660 yard mark, the candidate must renegotiate the running weave, this time dropping to the prone position (chest and hands in contact with the track) at each cone.
 
Passing time is 4 minutes 45 seconds
 
Event 3: Assault Dash
The candidate will begin in the prone position carrying an unloaded Remington 870 shotgun.  The student will have 7.70 seconds to run forty yards with the shotgun.

*Events may be completed in a different order.
