Deer Park Tavern
108 West Main Street
Newark, DE US 19711

Run, Walk, Donate, Cheer…but most of all: HONOR

We RUN to honor the heroes of 9/11. We run to HONOR those who’ve served our nation since.

The 9/11 Heroes Run is a 5K run, 5K ruck, or fun run! We're family friendly. Details are at 911HeroesRun.org. 

We run to ACTIVATE & UNITE COMMUNITIES and EMPOWER local veterans, active duty, first responders, and families of the fallen.

The 9/11 Heroes Run activates & unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include veterans, active duty, first responder, and families of the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and of all ages, volunteers, friends & family. It is not about fitness level or experience but about activating, uniting, and honoring our heroes. 

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.
