64 Law Enforcement from all over the South East States rode motorcycles full throttle to save lives.

The event started Wednesday and is a mixture of safety training for officers and a charity for the Special Olympics.

Today, the east parking lot of Doak Campbell Stadium was used as a course for officers to show off what they learned.

Charley Strickland the Treasurer for the Capital City Challenge says, the money is not totaled yet but it looks like they have at least $10,000 to donate.

The total amount being donated will be announced at a press conference next month.


The Tallahassee Police Department, with the assistance of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida State University Police Department, will host the 7th Annual Capital City Challenge. The event will be held this Saturday, May 7th, in the east parking lot of Doak Campbell Stadium. Competition begins at 8:00AM and will wrap up around 5:00PM.

Law Enforcement Officers from around the southeast will compete by riding their police motorcycles through challenging obstacle courses. Competitors will spend the day running several courses as they compete for 1st place honors. Additional events include a challenge ride, tether ride, team slow ride, and team relay.

There will be a raffle for a customized golf cart and trailer, as well as plenty of food and merchandise vendors. This event benefits Special Olympics Leon County.

Please come out and support these officers and Special Olympics Leon County. More information is available at www.capitalcitychallenge.com or 850-339-3840.

    Very entertaining. It's amazing how they maneuver those heavy bikes with such precision.

    What's with the negative comments? This was a great event for the community and for a great cause. I swear, cops could be handing out money and someone would bash them. Crawl back under your rocks you weasels (or under your jail bunk) as the case may be. So many losers like to sound so tough on anonymous posts, but if they had to deal with what these officers had to, they would wet their pants.

    All you cops from other agencies, watch out for Ofc. Lee from TPD. He would write his own mother a ticket. He does not understand the professional courtesy thing either.

    Shouldn't this be called pigs on hogs? How many free donuts does the winner get?

      Quonterius, I happen to know a few of these officers and Charlie Strickland is a personal friend of mine. I am deeply honored to call him that. You know what is really hilarious? If you said that to Charlie's face, he would laugh. Then a split second later, he would take a bullet to keep you from catching it. If you don't think you owe LE as a whole, and Charlie Strickland personally better than you are giving them, you are one perverted individual.
