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.

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.
