In April 2009, the U.S. Congress designated September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Now, every April, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day seeks to honor and affirm that spirit.
The sixth annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day will take place on Sunday, April 22, 2018. The route begins in lower Manhattan and takes participants through scenic Battery Park City with iconic views of One World Trade and the Statue of Liberty. The 5K Run/Walk finishes adjacent to the Memorial Plaza where Community Day takes place. The activities and all-ages entertainment will be free and open to the public.
