COVID 19 Information
Our top priority is the well- being of our participants, volunteers, Spartans and the members of the communities we serve. At this time we plan to hold the 9/11 Heroes Run, but please be assured we are monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and your state mandated orders carefully. If your state does not allow large gatherings and this race has to be canceled, we will switch to a virtual run option and ensure you receive your race items whether it be by a packet pick up option or in the mail.
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.

Started in 2007 by family of fallen 1stLt Travis Manion as a grassroots run in his hometown Doylestown, PA with 300 runners, the 9/11 Hereos 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. Race proceeds are used to directly support the 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 our heroes.
Travis Manion Foundation is proud to partner with GORUCK again in 2020, bringing rucking divisions to every 9/11 Heroes Run. Rucking is a sport grounded in special forces training in which participants carry weighted rucksacks. All participants registered for the GORUCK division will receive this exclusive Travis Manion Foundation GORUCK patch.
