The Peace Officers Memorial Run has moved through Douglas County and is on its way to the Capitol Grounds.

The annual relay started in Las Vegas last week. Each of the 134 legs of the relay represents the name of a fallen officer.

The Douglas segment of the run started at JackWright Pass on Highway 208 and traveled up Highway 395 through the Pine Nuts this morning.

The run is expected to reach Gardnerville at around noon, where schoolchildren from Gardnerville Elementary and Carson Valley Middle schools are expected to greet runners with flags.

The runner was passing 395 and Riverview at about 11:20 a.m.
