Started in 2007 by family of fallen 1st Lt. Travis Manion as a grassroots run in his hometown Doylestown, PA with 300 runners, the 9/11 Hereos Run now has over 50 race locations, presence in 38 different US States, and unites more than 30,000 people yearly to celebrate our heroes and spread awareness. Race proceeds are used to directly support the Travis Manion Foundation's mission to assist our nation's veterans & families of the fallen by empowering them to take the next steps in their personal journeys and inspire the next generation of great leaders. In select locations, a portion of race proceeds are granted back to a local nonprofit partner who's mission is also to empower our heroes. We believe the best way to honor the fallen is by challenging the living.
