9/11 Heroes Run at Great Lawn Park

September 11, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

The 9/11 Heroes Run is a 5k race honoring our heroes: those lost on September 11th and in the wars since, as well as the veterans, active duty, first responders, inspired civilians and families of the fallen that support them. This race benefits the Travis Manion Foundation which empowers veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations.


Join us to raise awareness and honor the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run 5k welcomes runners, ruckers, and walkers of all levels and ages. 9/11 Heroes Run events take place all over the world, on or near September 11th, and are 100% organized by local community volunteers. It is the perfect opportunity for you to personally come out and thank your local veterans, their families, and first responders in an annual, fun, and family-friendly environment!
