The 6th Annual Capital City Challenge is beginning May 5 – 8, 2010. This wonderful events benefits Special Olympics Leon County.
Where: The parking lot of Doak Campbell Stadium at Florida State University
While practices begin today, the competition is on Saturday and the whole family will enjoy it, believe me! Food and drink vendors will be present.
Hosted by The Florida State University Police Department, The Leon County Sheriffs Department, The Tallahassee Police Department and sponsored by many local businesses. This event draws law enforcement officers from across the Southeast who will compete in motorcycle riding events.
Riders will weave in and out of very tough obstacle courses as individuals and in teams. Riders practice for this event for months, some years and the skill levels of these officers are obvious. I ride a Harley Davidson, and I can’t imagine the tight twists and turns that this competition requires.
I was lucky enough to be a judge for these events for many years and will return this year, like every year to cheer on these talented officers. I hope you get a chance to see them train today, and compete on Saturday! Join me and help cheer on our local officers! It’s a great family event!
