Think you have what it takes to bust out of jail? Put your mental endurance and physical fitness to the test at our upcoming Jailbreak Escape – Urban Challenge Run on Saturday August 26, 2023.  

You’ll have to run, weave, carry and leap your way round the 3.1 mile (5 km) course at 541 Gibson Road, taking on CrossFit-style exercises to show us what you’re made of. 

Run by the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation, entries cost $35 per person for this fun, healthy, family activity designed for participants of all ages and fitness levels.

As any law enforcement officer will tell you, a great partner helps motivate you, carrying you when things get tough – literally – when it comes to this race. You’ll need to buddy up and find a teammate to take on the Jailbreak Escape Urban Challenge Run with you.  

As well as being a fun family day out, the race plays an important role in our department’s fundraising calendar. The Jailbreak has raised more than $95,000 to support professional law enforcement services in Lexington County. 

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation works to raise awareness of the Sheriff’s Department, its functions, operations and programs. Its fundraising activities work to fill any void between governmental funding and the needs of the community, providing vital materials, equipment and supplies that aren’t in the annual budget. 

“This tenth annual Jailbreak Escape Urban Challenge Run helps raise important funds to enhance the great work the department does here in Lexington County,” explains Sheriff Jay Koon

“The race is more than a physical challenge. It’s about teamwork, endurance, and yes, a little sweat – all things our officers use daily to serve the community which we’re so proud to be a part of.”

This year’s entrants already include Barely Holden On, Easier said than run, and  Will Run for Snacks. Join them to challenge yourself, have fun, and raise money for a great cause. Register to take part today.
