The sixth annual 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk and Community Day will be held on Sunday, April 22, 2018, in lower Manhattan.

More than 5,000 participants will come together in downtown Manhattan to honor the men and women we lost as a result of the Sept. 11 attacks and to support the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.

By signing up for the 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk, you will be supporting the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s mission and helping to sustain this lasting place for remembrance, reflection and learning for years to come.

As a thank you for participating, you’ll receive an exclusive discount to the 9/11 Memorial Museum, a race day t-shirt and access to “Bib N' Brunch” for special discounts and promotions at participating lower Manhattan restaurants.

The race will begin at 8 a.m. You can find out more about the route, race rules and bib pick-up here.

After the race, stick around for Community Day. This free, family-friendly event will be open from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Greenwich Street. Join us for food, entertainment and activities for all ages.
