About This Activity
We are also changing the start format to offer a greater tribute to the timeline of the day and a more ceremonial way to honor all those lost on 9/11 (details below).
We would like to invite you to help in the process of making this the best event of its kind. So please invite your friends- invite your church groups, co workers and commit to going farther than you did last year.
We will never forget the tragic events of 9/11/01 and how it changed our nation forever. Please join us for this special day and celebration of the greatest nation on earth. We wish to honor our troops, firefighters and law enforcement officers all of whom put their lives on the line to protect us.
Join us on September 12th and 13th, 2014 for a run/walk around Rogers Grove Park in Longmont, CO. The track is approx. 1 mile long and loops around the lake and park. You can walk one lap in support of the cause, or run as long or far as you desire. We will have a professional timing company on hand tracking all the miles for the Solo and Team runners. The event will be "chip timed" and the results will be posted in real time during the event. (Scoring provided by MCM Timing and Results, LLC) The course will be open for 9 hours and 11 minutes. RUNNERS HAVE ALL DAY TO ACCUMULATE MILES>
The run course is a flat, soft dirt trail. :
5k Run/ Walk 9.11 Mile Run Half Marathon Marathon 9 hour 11 minute run 24 hour run
We will have music and flags and fun for everyone. We encourage you to bring the family, BBQ, relax and cheer on the runners. There will be vendors and exhibits on hand as well as music and games.
We are expecting runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. There will also be several fire departments, police departments running as well as members of our Armed Forces.
