Police officers and firefighters will see who is faster in a 5K race set for April 28.
The Northside 5K, part of Atlanta’s BeltLine Running Series, is a rematch. Last year the police department dominated the fire department, according to a press release for the event.
This year’s race ups the ante, organizers say: Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran and Police Chief George Turner will join their departments’ teams.
The race begins and ends in Tanyard Creek Park. Runners and walkers will travel the Atlanta BeltLine Northside Trail through Tanyard Creek, Howard and Ardmore Parks along streets in the neighborhoods of Collier Hills, Collier Hills North and Ardmore Park.
The event begins at 8 a.m.
