ONALASKA, Wis. -- It turns out it does pay to run from the cops.

The third annual "Run from the Cops" 5k run/walk, hosted by the Onalaska Professional Police Association, raised $5,100 for the Onalaska/Holmen Food Basket.

The group presented the food pantry with the money Wednesday.

More than 300 people "ran from the cops" in the race October 22.

Last year the race raised more than $5,000 for the La Crosse Y's Miracle Field.
