May 28th, 2014 - 5:22am

(Port Angeles) – Local law enforcement officers will be carrying the Special Olympics' torch through our area today.

They're joining other officers across the state in bringing the torch to the Washington-state games at Joint Base Lewis-McChord this weekend.

Starting at about 7 am, the local run begins at Laird’s Corner with runners taking the torch along Edgewood Drive to the Truck Route and then downtown to the City Pier.

At about 8:30 am, Clallam County Commissioner Mike Chapman will lead anyone who would like to walk a leg of the course including Special Olympic Athletes for a walk from the Red Lion Hotel to the old Rayonier Site to give many a chance to carry the torch along the way.

From the old Rayonier Site, the run will follow the Discovery Trail to Rhodefer Rd where there will be a second walking leg for Sequim area folks at about 1pm. The Sequim walk will be led by members of the Washington State Patrol.

Jefferson County will make the final mile across the Hood Canal Bridge later tonight.
