PORTLAND, Maine —Two Portland police officers ran Saturday's Old Port Half Marathon in full uniform.
Officers Brent Abbott and Thomas Kwok finished the 13.1-mile race in about 2 1/2 hours, the department wrote on its Twitter page.
Abbott also ran the race in full uniform last year.
The officers raised $1,200 for K9s On The Front Line, the Amy St. Laurent Foundation/Portland Police R.A.D. Program.
Earlier this year, Portland police had asked the department’s Facebook fans to choose between the two groups, but ultimately decided to split the donations.
