5K Course Description

This is a somewhat challenging out and back paved course. The 5K starts and finishes on Jerry Dove Drive inside the East Security Gate on the FBI's CJIS Division Complex.

The race course runs along Jerry Dove Drive toward the main CJIS facility where runners will loop around a portion of the parking area and return to the start/finish area.

Chip-timing will be provided by Miles of Smiles Timing Services. A water stop will be set up at approximately miles 1 and 2 on the course. A warm-up/spectator area will be set up near the start/finish line. Due to the location of the race, no one will be permitted on the course prior to the start of the race, and only race participants will be allowed on the course after the race begins.

Walkers are welcome. Walkers will line up behind the runners and begin at the same time.

No bicycles, strollers, or roller blades will be permitted. Cameras are allowed only at the start and finish line area. No cameras are allowed on the course at any time. Children must not be left unattended at any time.

Event History

The roadway where this 5K race is to occur is named in honor of the late Special Agent (SA) Jerry Dove, a native West Virginian.

Prior to his FBI career, he was attached to the West Virginia State Police as an Attorney Advisor while employed by the West Virginia Office of the Attorney General. While assigned to the FBI's Miami Field Office, SA Dove was killed in the line of duty in a shoot out with two serial bank robbers in the infamous "Miami Firefight" on April 11, 1986. SA Ben Grogan was also killed. SA Dove has been honored for his heroic actions at numerous memorial services in Miami, the District of Columbia, and in Clarkburg, WV.

The FBI Jerry Dove Memorial 5K is dedicated to the memory of SA Dove and to all law enforcement officers, firefighters, military personnel, and others who were killed while serving in the line of duty
