by: Kristen Guilfoos

Local law enforcement gathered on Monday to kick off a 25-year old tradition.

The law enforcement torch runners are running from Amarillo to Arlington for the Special Olympics Texas 2009 Summer Games.

They lit the torch this morning, in preparation to start running on Wednesday.

Twenty officers will make the trip to Arlington, with stops in Childress and Wichita falls along the way.

They completed a mini-run from the Civic Center to the Eagle Center in downtown Amarillo on Monday.
