#LASD Distance Running is a Tradition at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.


#ThrowbackThursday We run for the obligation to stay as physically fit as possible for the job; We run, for the promise to our family, our partners and our community to be not only physically fit, but mentally fit for all and ready for the challenges we face every day! 


Distance running is not just exercise.   It pushes each of us for the will to endure and challenge our physiological limitations. It’s  brain training, which continually broadens and expands our physical and mental makeup.


LASD department members have been running through pain and joy and will continue running to embrace the new challenges to keep Los Angeles County a safe place to live. Tell us why you run.
