15, 31 and 62 miles from National Harbor, with the 31- and 62-mile routes going to Fort Washington, the 62-mile route to Marshall Hall, and all three routes crossing the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Bike-Ped Trail to Alexandria and ending with a celebration at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Site in Judiciary Square in downtown Washington. The Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember is a fun, community-oriented athletic event designed to honor the contribution and sacrifice law enforcement officers make every day and encourage community support for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Registration fee is $35 ($45 on day of the ride). All registered riders and runners must also agree to raise a minimum of $53 for the Law Enforcement Ride & Run to Remember, benefiting the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund, because law enforcement officers support us every day – and every 53 hours an officer makes the ultimate sacrifice.
