Race Information

The 9/11 Heroes Run/Walk/Ruck activates and unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, including veterans, active duty, first responders, and families of the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run 5k +1Mi fun run/walk welcomes runners, ruckers, and walkers of all levels and all ages, volunteers, friends, and family. It is not about fitness level or experience but about activating, uniting, and honoring heroes.

Started in 2007 by the family of fallen 1st Lt. Travis Manion as a grassroots run in his hometown Doylestown, PA, with 300 runners, the 9/11 Heroes Run now has race locations around the world, presence in different states across the country, and unites many thousands of people yearly to celebrate heroes and spread awareness. Race proceeds are used to directly support the Travis Manion Foundation's mission to empower the nation's veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations and to strengthen communities.

The Murfreesboro 9/11 Heroes Run is a fast 5k route through Historic Downtown Murfreesboro and the event includes The City Schools Foundation's Back to School Dash 1-mile fun run. This event is also a GORUCK event and has received exceptional praise in both route and experience.
