5K Run/Walk & Community Day

Save the date for this year’s 5K Run/Walk and Community Day: April 26, 2020.

Join us for the eighth annual 9/11 Memorial & Museum 5K Run/Walk and Community Day to remember the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children killed on 9/11 and honor the spirit and resilience of New York City.

Like last year, the route begins in lower Manhattan and takes participants through scenic Battery Park with iconic views of One World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty. The race will conclude near the 9/11 Memorial. Race participants and the general public are invited to enjoy Community Day, a free event with activities and entertainment for all ages, which will follow the race.

See below for photos from last year’s race and Community Day, and join us next year to run or walk in support of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Registration opens January 2020 — we hope to see you there.
