    Show your patriotism. Compete against yourself. Compete against other teams. How many laps can YOU complete from noon-9:11 p.m. on September 11, 2020?  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 and eleven minutes To Thank And Honor Those Who Serve Our Country and those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Individuals or teams can choose to run for nine hours and 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 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. The 5K starts at 6:30pm. All events are timed/tracked.

    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. 5K/Half receive cotton, while Marathon/Ultra receive tech.
    Finishers medals to 5K, half marathon, marathon and ultra.
    Team Plaque for all teams. 

    PLEASE TRACK YOUR LAPS! GPS ISNT PERFECT. --> Bring a friend to help! 

    Race Day Registration Will Be Available.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...
