As the city of Wilmington wakes on a beautiful September morning, 

our runners will come together to participate in a traditionally timed 

5k run (3.1 miles) or 1 mile run/walk. After a brief opening ceremony at 8:30AM, 

our 5k run will begin at 8:46AM, the time the North Tower of the World Trade Center was struck by American Airlines flight 11 and our 1 mile walk/run will follow at 9:03AM, 

the time the South Tower of the World Trade Center was struck by United Airlines flight 175. 


At the finish of our 5K, our runners will continue to walk through our “Hero Honor Walk” to 3.43 miles in honor the 43 firefighters lost that day.  Our “Hero Honor Walk” will be lined with 

pictures of the 343 FDNY lost on 9/11 dedicated by the sponsors of our event.

 

Located on Pier 33 following our run, will be a one of a kind chili cook-off 

complete with live music, food, drinks, and good ‘ole fun.  

This is sure to be an event the whole family can enjoy! 


The city of Wilmington will be embodied with camaraderie as men and women 

in uniform, avid runners, and community members of all ages run in honor of 

and join together in this symbolic event for those lost on 9/11. 


Please join us in bringing forth a new tradition for the City of Wilmington 

and it’s surrounding communities and let us come together in community spirit 

to help support those who gave their all and those who continue

 to protect and serve us each day. 

Good will always prevail and “We Will Never Forget.”
