Registration is now open for the 9/11 Memorial 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, Apr. 24, 2016.

The 5K will begin at Pier 26 in Tribeca at 8 a.m. and take participants through scenic Battery Park along the waterfront before finishing at Community Day, taking place adjacent to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. The route includes meaningful sites such as “Point Thank You,” where New Yorkers cheered rescue and recovery workers headed to Ground Zero, and serves as a reminder of how we came together after 9/11.

Community Day is a family-friendly festival open to the public with food, entertainment, and activities for all ages. 5K participants will also have the opportunity to participate in our post-race Bib N’ Brunch, which will offer participants a special discount at many lower Manhattan restaurants.  Look back at last year’s 5K Run/Walk, which hosted more than 4,000 participants.

Register today to purchase 5K tickets for $35, a $10 discount from the regular adult entry fee of $45. The deadline to purchase tickets at the discounted price is Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016.
