About This Activity

Show your patriotism. Compete against yourself. Compete against other teams. How many one-mile laps can YOU complete from noon-9:11 p.m. on September 11, 2015?  Or-how fast can you run a 5K, half marathon, marathon or ultra run?  Or-how many laps can your team complete?  We have it all!

 The traditional Patriots’ Run is a family-friendly race with community party atmosphere. The day begins at noon and we race for nine hours, eleven minutes to honor first responders and those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Individuals or teams can choose to run for nine hours, eleven minutes, or for any portion of the day. The individual and team with the most laps at the end of the day, wins the race. You can also participate in the marathon, half marathon 5K or Ultra Divisions.

The event starts at noon and continues until 9:11 PM. The marathon, half marathon and 5K start at noon only. The Ultra runners, casual runners/walkers and teams are welcome to start at any time and go as many laps as you wish. All events except the casual are chipped timed.

Teams and families are welcome to set up a tent in the designated area. Lawn chairs are encouraged! Spectators can bring family and friends, cheer for their favorite runner and listen to the music (there is ALWAYS music at the Patriots’ Run). This is one of the few such events where spectators can watch the entire run.

 Team categories include military, law enforcement, fire fighters, EMTs, race walkers and open division. You can have up to 10 per team. The chip is relayed runner to runner and we total the laps. If another runner is out with the chipped runner, only the chipped runner is counted.

All participants receive a T-shirt.  Finishers medals to 5K, half marathon, marathon and ultra.
