TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Law enforcement motor unit officers took a couple of practice laps Friday at Doak Campbell Stadium ahead of the 14th Annual Capital City Challenge.

That challenge brings out the finest bike cops from agencies across the region, even stretching as far as Tennessee and South Carolina.

The competition put those officers through challenging obstacle courses all to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Officer Damon Miller with the Tallahassee Police Department says that participating is a big deal.

"It can be nerve wracking, especially if it's your first time. I remember my first time competing, you've never done it before, you're in front of people, but you just have to revert back to your training and hopefully you'll come out on top," said Miller.

You an see who comes out on top Saturday. The competition runs from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Doak Campbell Stadium.
