Sixty runners burned rubber in Fairfield’s Finest 5K Run/Walk Saturday in Chautauqua Park. Among those hitting the trail hard are, from left, Katrina Johnson, Joni Fleig, Brian Simmons (overall winner), Anika McClelland, Julie Harvey and Taryn Mottet. The Fairfield Police Association sponsored the run, which was in its inaugural year. The run was planned by the following association officers: president Dave Wall, vice president Joel Smith, and secretary/treasurer Kathy Blumhagen. Fairfield Police Chief Harvey said, “My officers are very appreciative of all the community support we have received and felt we needed to do something to give back to our community.” The proceeds from the run will go toward purchasing a Thanksgiving meal for a family. Before Christmas, officers will invite elementary students to “shop with a cop.”
