The 9/11 run is to honor those who lost their lives in the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, as well as Local First Responders and Veterans. Proceeds will go to the Grand Traverse Region Public Safety Alliance. This brand new non-profit fund was set up to help Local First Responders (Police, Fire, EMS, Emergency Management, 911 Dispatchers and Coast Guard) which will allow for education opportunities, scholarships, recognition, emergency financial support, etc.
We welcome all Runners, Walkers, Wheelchairs and dogs.
The race start is at 8:46a which is the same time the World Trade Center North Tower was hit. We will gather before the race for a quick ceremony to remember and honor those who lost their lives that day and show support to our Local First Responders who risk their lives every day to keep us safe and then show our spirit with an amazing run!
Prizes will be given to age group and overall winners.
Did you say after party? Why yes, Little Fleet will be opening early for all race participants offering $1 off drinks and free soda at the bar to all participants! Live music will entertain the crowd and food trucks, the Daily Blend and Roaming Harvest, will open early to serve hungry runners.
