Loved everything about it except the down and back course. With the Waynewood grid, you should be able to design a 5K course that loops. There were no cones marking the course at the turn so when everyone came down the hill and saw the road blocked off by police cars, they just turned around and ran back, cutting short the course and forcing everyone to dodge collisions. Other than that, great event, great cause, great people.

Overall event was a huge success... I would only change the course layout, as there was many bottle necks of runners on one watvstreets... also I would ask for an finishers medal for all, and then the first place finishers would get a larger medal or statue...

Every year this event is so much fun! It's just an incredible atmosphere in general. Whether you are running the 5K or the Fun Run or just there to be a part of the day, it is a great time. Our whole team participates each year and we look forward to it all year long! Thank you to all of those who put so much hard work into making it happen.

This was my first opportunity to participate in the 9/11 Heros Run. It was a great experience with community participation. The race was well run and very organized. It was a pleasure to join for a great cause.

Very enjoyable morning that honored our fallen heroes. I was delighted to be a part of it. Pre race activities were both informational and entertaining. The course was well marked and award ceremony carried out expeditiously.

This is an incredibly well-organized, well-executed, fun race for a good cause. Get there early for the pre-race events - a great opportunity to reflect on 9/11 and why we have this race to run in. Very good for littler kids trying out a 5k!

Although I still consider myself a beginning runner, I have been participating in at least one 5K a month for the past two years. In addition, I have run this particular 5K for the past three years and find it to be one of the best organized races that I have done. From the registration, to the packet pick-up, to the day of the race, everything runs smoothly. My only complaint is that I would love to see pictures of just this event as I tired of scrolling through pictures from all over the country. Where can I find pictures of just the Alexandria, VA event?

Such a positive and warm atmosphere and all in support for a great cause. We ran this race as a family - our first one, and we all walked (or limped) away happy and full of pancakes and bacon. What more could you want!

I had shoulder surgery on August 1, and had to walk this event instead of run, per doctor's orders. This was a challenge to me because I have always been so active. My husband, a veteran of two wars, accompanied me, walking as well, due to 2 torn menisci. As we did our very best, I contemplated the motto of "Honoring the Fallen by Challenging the living." I reflected that each of us has challenges of one sort or another and I thought that only by pushing, only by giving it our best, can we truly honor the fallen for giving our country their best. It was quite an honor to participate in this event. Afterall, "If not me, then who?"

My six year old son had a ball, and so did I. It was worth the two hour drive each way to share this meaningful event. Next year I'd like to see more vendor tables though. And more children's shirts. They ran out when I went to pick ours up, but an older teen gave us his so at least my son got to wear one.

Thank you for putting this together! Had a great time. Only thing to change, having the track run by the finish line then around the school and back to the finish psyched a lot of runners out.

I love this race! It's super organized, the course works well for all experience levels, and it's just plain fun! It's a fundraiser to benefit military and first responder personnel, so of course there are speeches at the beginning of the event. I've done this race for the past 3 years and the opening speeches are personal and heartfelt. The short personal talks make me feel proud and happy to be there. They leave me wanting to support this worthwhile cause not just for this race, but throughout the year. Oh, and is there anything better than pancakes, bacon, bananas, and juice after a 5K? I think not!
- by , 09/11/2017

My only change would be to post the course map and parking maps online before the race. It isn't a huge issue at all since it is a pretty low-key race, but those are just nice to knows for people planning prior to packet pickup or race day. The course was a little short, but otherwise beautiful. A wonderfully managed race for a great cause!
Awesome, inspiring event and great way to honor the brave men and women who serve & protect us! - by , 09/11/2017

I loved participating in this event. The words of Travis Manion, "If not me, then who?" serve as inspiration to all of us. May we each discover the power within to answer the call. This event is a great opportunity to pay tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed for us on 9/11 and in the conflicts that followed.

I enjoyed the run. The path was clear and concise and directions easy. Loved having all the groups out playing music and marching to lead us. It would have been good though to have the announcer explain the course prior to running. And the water should've been on one side only because it made a very narrow corridor when running between both. The breakfast and activities for families was amazing and such a nice touch. Next year I'll be bringing my whole family.

It was awesome that we are able to remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 heores, but honestly we all know why we are there. Save the speeches for after the race of at least cut them in half. A few words from the founders, an elected official should be enough. Don't over do it.

Second year doing this race. Once again totally impressed with the organization of the race, from registration, to packet pick-up, to the program, the race itself, and the post- race IHOP! My 11 year old and hubby ran both years too. Such a great cause and a way to pause with our neighbors and reflect on those that stepped up for a cause or a profession greater than themselves.

I loved the community spirit and camaraderie. The only thing that would have been better would be easy access to actual race times. Otherwise, as a veteran and first responder I thought this was an awesome way to celebrate the our country in a time of conflict.

It would be better to build in a loop like last year instead of a simple down and back. There was no marker, not even a cone, to mark the turn so when the course came down the hill, most people turned around when they saw the police blocking the street. Pretty chaotic on the toughest part of the course. Overall, great run!

Great race experience. Loved the course. Since the speaker said it was an out and back I was caught off guard with the last chunk of the race around the school building. Not sure if there was a course map posted somewhere at the race site, but that is always a helpful visual for race planning. Lots of great booths. Loved the first responder turn out. The breakfast was great. Just a tip: be sure to tell all speakers to hold the mic flush to their chin to ensure that they can be heard. The only challenge I have experienced is not being able to find the race results on line. Most sites have a drop down where you can click on results.

I enjoyed everything about the race! It was a beautiful day for the race and the course was fast and easy to follow. I even got a PR! Everything was well organized and beautifully executed. I loved the pancake breakfast, too. What a treat! The speakers were very interesting as well as motivational. The only thing I'd have changed is to have more coffee available (small detail). I'd do this race again in a heartbeat! Thanks for a great race.

This 5k was very organized. Great experience, and of course for a great cause. The only issue was, I could not hear all of the speakers (but also, there were a LOT of them). I would recommend a better mic and less speakers, since the audience lost their focus after the second or so one. I look forward to participating again next year. Thank you!
Great Community Run - by , 09/10/2017

The Alexandria version of the 9-11 Heroes Run is a great community event for a wonderful cause. One improvement for next year is to better separate runners in this out and back course. There was no clear lane for returning runners which caused some confusion and, I'm sure, loss of a few seconds for the fastest runners.

Overall event was a huge success... I would only change the course layout, as there was many bottle necks of runners on one watvstreets... also I would ask for an finishers medal for all, and then the first place finishers would get a larger medal or statue...

Every year this event is so much fun! It's just an incredible atmosphere in general. Whether you are running the 5K or the Fun Run or just there to be a part of the day, it is a great time. Our whole team participates each year and we look forward to it all year long! Thank you to all of those who put so much hard work into making it happen.

This was my first opportunity to participate in the 9/11 Heros Run. It was a great experience with community participation. The race was well run and very organized. It was a pleasure to join for a great cause.

This is an incredibly well-organized, well-executed, fun race for a good cause. Get there early for the pre-race events - a great opportunity to reflect on 9/11 and why we have this race to run in. Very good for littler kids trying out a 5k!

Although I still consider myself a beginning runner, I have been participating in at least one 5K a month for the past two years. In addition, I have run this particular 5K for the past three years and find it to be one of the best organized races that I have done. From the registration, to the packet pick-up, to the day of the race, everything runs smoothly. My only complaint is that I would love to see pictures of just this event as I tired of scrolling through pictures from all over the country. Where can I find pictures of just the Alexandria, VA event?

I had shoulder surgery on August 1, and had to walk this event instead of run, per doctor's orders. This was a challenge to me because I have always been so active. My husband, a veteran of two wars, accompanied me, walking as well, due to 2 torn menisci. As we did our very best, I contemplated the motto of "Honoring the Fallen by Challenging the living." I reflected that each of us has challenges of one sort or another and I thought that only by pushing, only by giving it our best, can we truly honor the fallen for giving our country their best. It was quite an honor to participate in this event. Afterall, "If not me, then who?"

My six year old son had a ball, and so did I. It was worth the two hour drive each way to share this meaningful event. Next year I'd like to see more vendor tables though. And more children's shirts. They ran out when I went to pick ours up, but an older teen gave us his so at least my son got to wear one.

Thank you for putting this together! Had a great time. Only thing to change, having the track run by the finish line then around the school and back to the finish psyched a lot of runners out.

I love this race! It's super organized, the course works well for all experience levels, and it's just plain fun! It's a fundraiser to benefit military and first responder personnel, so of course there are speeches at the beginning of the event. I've done this race for the past 3 years and the opening speeches are personal and heartfelt. The short personal talks make me feel proud and happy to be there. They leave me wanting to support this worthwhile cause not just for this race, but throughout the year. Oh, and is there anything better than pancakes, bacon, bananas, and juice after a 5K? I think not!

My only change would be to post the course map and parking maps online before the race. It isn't a huge issue at all since it is a pretty low-key race, but those are just nice to knows for people planning prior to packet pickup or race day. The course was a little short, but otherwise beautiful. A wonderfully managed race for a great cause!

I loved participating in this event. The words of Travis Manion, "If not me, then who?" serve as inspiration to all of us. May we each discover the power within to answer the call. This event is a great opportunity to pay tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed for us on 9/11 and in the conflicts that followed.

I enjoyed the run. The path was clear and concise and directions easy. Loved having all the groups out playing music and marching to lead us. It would have been good though to have the announcer explain the course prior to running. And the water should've been on one side only because it made a very narrow corridor when running between both. The breakfast and activities for families was amazing and such a nice touch. Next year I'll be bringing my whole family.

It was awesome that we are able to remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 heores, but honestly we all know why we are there. Save the speeches for after the race of at least cut them in half. A few words from the founders, an elected official should be enough. Don't over do it.

Second year doing this race. Once again totally impressed with the organization of the race, from registration, to packet pick-up, to the program, the race itself, and the post- race IHOP! My 11 year old and hubby ran both years too. Such a great cause and a way to pause with our neighbors and reflect on those that stepped up for a cause or a profession greater than themselves.

I loved the community spirit and camaraderie. The only thing that would have been better would be easy access to actual race times. Otherwise, as a veteran and first responder I thought this was an awesome way to celebrate the our country in a time of conflict.

It would be better to build in a loop like last year instead of a simple down and back. There was no marker, not even a cone, to mark the turn so when the course came down the hill, most people turned around when they saw the police blocking the street. Pretty chaotic on the toughest part of the course.
Overall, great run!

Great race experience. Loved the course. Since the speaker said it was an out and back I was caught off guard with the last chunk of the race around the school building. Not sure if there was a course map posted somewhere at the race site, but that is always a helpful visual for race planning. Lots of great booths. Loved the first responder turn out. The breakfast was great. Just a tip: be sure to tell all speakers to hold the mic flush to their chin to ensure that they can be heard. The only challenge I have experienced is not being able to find the race results on line. Most sites have a drop down where you can click on results.

I enjoyed everything about the race! It was a beautiful day for the race and the course was fast and easy to follow. I even got a PR! Everything was well organized and beautifully executed. I loved the pancake breakfast, too. What a treat! The speakers were very interesting as well as motivational. The only thing I'd have changed is to have more coffee available (small detail). I'd do this race again in a heartbeat! Thanks for a great race.

This 5k was very organized. Great experience, and of course for a great cause. The only issue was, I could not hear all of the speakers (but also, there were a LOT of them). I would recommend a better mic and less speakers, since the audience lost their focus after the second or so one.


I look forward to participating again next year. Thank you!

The Alexandria version of the 9-11 Heroes Run is a great community event for a wonderful cause.
One improvement for next year is to better separate runners in this out and back course. There was no clear lane for returning runners which caused some confusion and, I'm sure, loss of a few seconds for the fastest runners.

This is the 3rd year we have done this event in Alexandria. This year we brought my brother and parents. It is well organized and such a great cause. The Fill the Boots campaign was so wonderful.
We will continue to participate and honor our military and first responders.
Thank you for the opportunity.
