Sonora, CA– Tuolumne County Investigator Tom Memmer will be running 60 mile from Pine Crest Lake to Don Pedro Lake Saturday seeking the title of Sheriff.
He says a Sheriff should be fit both physically and mentally. Memmer, who has been with the Sheriff´s Department for 19 years, says in doing this, he will be demonstrating two things: that he is willing and able to run if necessary to serve the citizens of the Mother Lode and to let all of the felons know that they better not try to outrun him.
The 57-year-old Vietnam War Veteran says to make the run easy, he plans on breaking the run down and running six to seven miles at a time.
Memmer will begin by running from Tuolumne City to Sonora to meet with supporters at the Junction Shopping Center between 10am to 12pm. He will appear in other shopping areas after the run.
