10th Annual Jailbreak 5K Set for Saturday

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department and the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation are co-hosting the 10th Jailbreak 5K Run & Walk on May 28.

“Over the past nine years, more than 4,500 participants of all ages and fitness levels have gathered in Lexington to enjoy a morning of fun and friendly competition,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Not only is the Jailbreak Lexington’s premiere 5K race, it’s also a great opportunity for our community to support law enforcement.”

Koon said the Lexington County Sheriff’s Foundation has raised more than $65,000 during previous races to purchase equipment, training and other supplies to assist deputies in carrying out their duties.

This year’s race starts at 8 a.m. at the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department’s headquarters on Gibson Road.

According to Koon, Gibson Road will be closed in the area around LCSD headquarters from 6:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. Deputies will be posted around the course to control traffic and ensure the safety of race participants and motorists.
