[9/8] 9/11 Heroes Run - Philadelphia

Join us for our 8th Annual Philadelphia 9/11 Heroes Run at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on Saturday September 8th, 2018.

The 9/11 Heroes Run activates and unites communities to honor
the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include, veterans, active duty, first responders,
and families of the fallen. 

The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K run and 1 Mile fun run/walk welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and ages, volunteers, friends & family. It is not about fitness level or experience but about activating, uniting, and honoring our heroes.

The run benefits the Travis Manion Foundation, a national Veteran Service Organization dedicated to strengthening America's National Character. TMF hosts dozens of youth mentorship programs across Philadelphia, and impacts over 5000 students annually in the city through their Character Does Matter initiative. 

We'll have cash prizes for top finishers (gift cards for Philly Runner, and several other area partners), a vendor area, and static displays from Philadelphia Fire Department, Philadelphia Police Department and several local military units. 

9/11 Heroes Run is family friendly, kid friendly, dog friendly, stroller friendly, accessibility friendly, and overall friendly, and there is plenty of parking at the Philly Navy Yard.
