About 150 women have already signed up to compete in the 4th annual event. Officer Michelle Lazark says a timed obstacle course includes several difficult agility tests. 

"They’re going to be running and jumping over obstacles. There’s going to be two 6-feet walls there. When females don’t pass this obstacle course it’s usually because of that wall and it’s simply a technique that we teach. Once they learn the technique they excel through the obstacle course." 

The challenge is aimed at recruiting more females to the police force. It starts at 10 AM Saturday at William Land Park.
