About This Activity


Hello American Heroes Runners,


Thank you for another amazing year, you all persevered and finished well. As I promised at the race start, we are going to push the envelope for our 6th year in 2015. We are setting a goal of 343 runners (one for each FDNY fire fighter lost on 9/11). We will also be recruiting for members of our armed services to make a large presence during the run in 2015.



We are committing to you to have the following for next year:


  • Finisher's Shirts($10)
  • Event Medals (DogTags) for all events
  • USA Belt Buckle for anyone doing 100 miles in 24 Hour Race
  • 50 Mile Dog Tag Medal for anyone completing 50 miles in 24 Hour or 9 Hour 11 Minute Run
  •  "Ultra Marathoner" Dog Tag for anyone going longer than 26.2 miles in 24 Hour or 9 Hour 11 Minute Run
  • Finisher's Certificates for all finishers


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.


Thank you and God Bless the USA!!

David.
