Event Description

Run, Walk, Ruck, Volunteer, Donate, Cheer…but most of all: HONOR

We RUN, WALK and RUCK to honor the heroes of 9/11. 

We run, walk and ruck to HONOR those who’ve served our nation since. 

We run, walk and ruck to ACTIVATE & UNITE COMMUNITIES and EMPOWER local veterans, active duty, first responders, and families of the fallen.

The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K welcomes runners, ruckers, and walkers of all ages and fitness levels to honor the heroes of 9/11 and those who've served our nations since. We activate & unite communities and empower local veterans, active duty, first responders, and families of the fallen. 

TMF is proud to partner with GORUCK again with rucking divisions at every run. Rucking is a sport based on special forces training in which participants walk or run while carrying weighted rucksacks. All participants registered for the GORUCK division will earn this year's exclusive TMF GORUCK patch.

All participants registered for the GORUCK division will earn this exclusive TMF GORUCK patch. For in-person runs that have not gone virtual, please read the rules and requirements for participation very carefully as they have changed since last year, and learn all about GORUCK: The Rucking Company here.


This run series was started in 2007 by the family of fallen 1st Lt Travis Manion (USMC) as a grassroots run in his hometown Doylestown, PA with 300 runners. The 9/11 Heroes Run now has more than 90 race locations around the world, presence in 38 different states across the country, and unites more than 60,000 people yearly to celebrate our heroes and spread awareness. Proceeds are used to directly support Travis Manion Foundation's mission to empower our nation's veterans and families of our fallen heroes to develop character in future generations. In select locations, a portion of race proceeds are granted back to a local nonprofit partner whose mission is also to empower these heroes.
