(SALINA,Kan.) — Ninety-degree temperatures didn't stop Wednesday's leg of the Kansas law enforcement torch run. Runners started in downtown Salina and jogged south to Lindsborg.
"It’s long, you get hot, everything hurts, but it's all for a good cause," says Saline County Sheriff Deputy Scott Trembley.
The annual Kansas Law Enforcement torch run spans the entire state and brings in nearly 900 police agencies. The event hit its 30th birthday this year.
"I believe all together it is about 13 miles so it’s not as bad as it sounds and we do have some people that run the entire distance," says Trembley.
