Description

What is a Tunnel To Towers Run & Walk? 
The Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk Series was created to honor the heroic life and death of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers. Honor all of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and support our first responders and military who make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty! For more information on the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation please visit t2t.org.

This is Chester County’s second annual Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk! We are excited to bring together the community to honor our military and first responders, remember 9/11, and raise funds for the Tunnel to Towers programs.

Runners predicting a pace faster than 6 minute/mile will be seeded in the front corral (arrive early).

Will there be awards for running? 
Yes, we keep them very simple since our mission is to honor first responders, most of our awards are based on firefighters, police, or military running in gear in the same fashion that Stephen Siller did on 9/11. This event is intended to be an experience and much more than a run.
