Pretty easy course, nice and flat. No spectators out on the course though, that's not a big deal to me but aome people really like the encouragement.

This is well organized and the best I have been to! I always look forward to it! It's the mother of all runs! It 's fun and I feel it inspires and encourages love for God, love for our fellowmen and love for country. Kudos to all the organizers and of course, God bless the men and women who try to make us safe everyday!

Good race this year. For such s small race, they still encourage people to get into their corrals too early, but not as bad as years passed between corral lineup and race start. Walkers continue to lineup in front corrals creating a potential hazard to themselves and the hundreds of faster people behind them. Great post race atmosphere. Cool vendors. Beer!!! Lastly, the shirts were uncomfortable this year. They kind of stick to your back.

This was an amazing experience for my first 5k. It was very organized and the atmosphere was great. It felt good to contribute to families and walk for such a memorable horrific event. 9/11 was a devastating day that being part of this 5k event felt good to give back. I am hooked on this 5k now.

I have ran various 5k in the past but this was the first race that I participated in were the event was organized, the course was well thought (running by Arlington/Pentagon), and every few turns there was a group of people cheering me on. Band playing patriotic music, football/cheerleaders giving high fives or offering words of encouragement, DJ music could be heard throughout the race which made it go by fairly quick. Although the best was running alongside various recruits yelling hilarious things. It was an honor to run with Heroes and I cannot wait to register for next year. This time I will bring my family. (side note: the fire engines, SWAT cars, and motorcycles is any little boy's dream...I didn't know how family friendly it would be until after my husband and I arrived).

The Key note spoke way too long - he missed the point and made it about what he had done not the fact that we are there for the fallen, survivors and responders.
I love running for a cause...this is my favorite one. Sobering,surrounded by true heroes. - by , 09/14/2017

When I counted my medals at home I didn't realize this was my 8th race. I started running for personal reasons but now I run for the heroes and their families. Plus the after party is always fun! The DJ / dancing is entertaining and so were the food (blue dog BBQ ) and beverages. My gluten free friend wished there had been cider or wine for her. The ACPD is a class act and feel like family after all these years ( thank you Dianne, Mark and Sean!)

Fantastic Event; very motivational; great charity! - by , 09/14/2017
5/ 5stars
I ran this 5K six years ago and came back to run it this year. Its very inspiring, love the involvement of law enforcement. Give me tremendous pride to see them out there, this event should be replicated not just for 9-11. This motivates me to support Law enforcement even more, I would gladly run every single race to support the departments. I strongly believe our departments need more community support and empowerment in order to continue to make our cities and communities safer so I would love to support more races of this nature and I would gladly pay more maybe $50 buck or $60 bucks to race. I would suggest the pricing that you have but add an option as a Volunteer fee or greater than the $35 or $40 bucks you charge. I would have given $100 to help contribute more. Just an idea! : )

I loved this race! Packet pick-up was easy with lots of pick up time options. Pre-race -- I greatly appreciated the water available before the race & photo opportunity with the American Flag & Fire trucks. Race -- I enjoyed the course relatively "flat" so it was easy for all ability levels & I loved running around the Pentagon. Finish line & Post-race -- Finish line was easy & not too crowded. Post-race, it was very easy to get water, beer, food. I loved the DJ & the fun, friendly atmosphere created for participants & families.

Overall a well-run event. It's just tough to be moved to the starting coral 30-40 minutes before the race starts and lose all the warm up effort. Can we streamline the opening ceremonies somehow?

2017 Arlington 9-11 5K - by , 09/14/2017
4/ 4stars
I have taken part in the race for many years and love the event, what it stands for and the blend of people that participate. In my opinion it's by far the best 5k event and I try to encourage others to attend. Observations this year: Bag check While packet bags were clear, I don't believe there was a bag-check this year. This caused some last-minute stress. It also makes it less accessible for people who don't have supporters who can watch their bags during the race. It's possible there was a bag check, if there was, I couldn't locate it. Course Map - It could be due to security or other factors but any race should attempt a course map and indicate it is subject to change. At least then participants can identify where they are in the course based off that. Team Management It may be due to transitioning to new third party/parties but I didn't receive any emails when participants joined my team. This led me to have to cross-check my entire department against the registered users to identify my signed up members. Even if the email worked, all team captains/managers should have an ability to view the members of their team and issue team emails. While these were some negatives this year, my overall view is still very positive. The event was well run, fun and managed well on the day. Thank you and looking forward to participating next year!

Best race of the year - by , 09/13/2017
5/ 5stars
This is my favorite race every year -- considering the purpose of the race, the pre-race commemoration of the events of 9-11, the historic nature of the course, the levelness of the course, the comraderie of the runners during the race, the after-race party and treats (with pulled pork this time; over the top), and the quick results; even the awards (great for displaying in your office!) are great. And this year, perfect weather. In years past there were technical long sleeve T shirts, which are not that useful; this year they were cotton, much more useful during the year. Everyone involved in the organization of this race is to be commended.
Great race, year after year, but... - by , 09/13/2017

Incredibly well organized and administered year after year. But PLEASE cut down on the opening remarks that seem to get longer every year. Start the speechifying as people are walking to the line, have the color guard and National Anthem, then start the race. It's become a bit of a joke: will we survive all the talking and hot air from the podium? Otherwise, one of my favorites.
Beautiful evening for a race! - by , 09/13/2017

The 9-11 memorial 5K is one of my favorite races of the year. It's for a wonderful cause. The race course goes around the Pentagon. The atmosphere is upbeat & positive. The post-race party was lots of fun!
Fantastic 5K for a great cause - by , 09/13/2017

This was my first time running in this event. The Arlington Police/Fire/Sheriff 5K is a great family friendly 5K for all runners. Most 5Ks don't provide medals, food, and drinks, this event does! The price is very reasonable and the cause is priceless. Thank you to all the men and women who work in a first responder career.

This was a very well organized small race. The packet pickup process was fast and efficient. The course was well marked and there were sufficient volunteers and water stations for the short distance. The process of collecting the medal and a bottle of water (for starters) after crossing the finish line was very efficient. Initially, there was a pretty long line for food. Once one of the staff members/volunteers indicated there were two lines for food, the line moved rather quickly. The post-race street party was nice and the host/MC was very entertaining. Parking for the race was a painless process. I truly enjoyed this race and plan to do it again next year. Never realized it was being done for the last 15 years. My recommendations would be to have a runners only area for food and drinks and a separate area for spectators/non-runners to purchase food and drink items. Also, maybe instead of water after crossing the finish line, volunteers can hand out a Gatorade.

Aside from the fact that so many entrances to the Hotel area were closed before 4:30, with no signs to direct us as to where to park, everything else was excellent! This was my very first 5K! Things ran very smoothly, and right on schedule. There was plenty of security, and the location circling the Pentagon was awe inspiring! The Shirts are fantastic, and thee Medal a definite keeper!!! Great Job by all!

Arlington knows ow to put on a terrific race experience. First, the ties to first responders and the 9-11 attacks make this a highly emotional event for all the participants. But in addition, it is well organized from start to finish, the location and layout works well, and pre-race and onsite support is extraordinary. Also, the food and drinkn is good and plentiful, music and DJ are fun, etc... It is a great time and I like forward toparticiapting eveyr year. I just wish my running times were improving...

Patriotic, worthy cause bringing together civilian, first responders, military, law enforcement. Just as 9/11 impacted everyone individually but brought us together, so does this race experience. Excellent and easy pick up, racing, post race. Only problem was lack of bathrooms for the significant number of people. Only bathroom available was the hotel 3 stall bathroom with a troublesome and exceedingly long wait.

This is a well - organised race as always. I started running this last year after hearing it from a friend. Definitely glad i came back this year. Everywhere from packet pickup, the race route, beginning of the race to the after party was amazing. My old negative this year is the DJ they hired for the race. I would recommend having a little talk with this person regarding appropriate choice of songs and things to say at a 9/11 memorial run. I was absolutely astonished to hear some of the stuff on the speakers coming from him. I would have given 5 stars otherwise if not for this DJ. I hope the people in charge of putting this race together get to see this survey results and act duly upon it.

The 9-11 race is the most memorable one of the year for me being surrounded by patriots and everyday heros who gather to honor and remember those fallen victims and first responders. Perfect location near the Pentagon, easy track, love the tees, and what fun at both the beginning and the end. Recommend selling long sleeved onesies of the 9-11 emblem for the little ones. The volunteers and sponsors put on a A+ event. Thanks for all your incredible hard work! Never forget!
Comparing to 10 years ago - by , 09/12/2017
4/ 4stars
I ran this race for the first time nine and ten years ago. I remember the course going up a ramp and through a tunnel, then finally rounding a corner and seeing the finish line. The course has changed since then but I like how it ends. Coming up the ramp then seeing the finish line inspires you to keep going and pushes you to finish strong. I did not like the starting points. In the past you had pace times positioned, I don't know if people actually lined up correctly, but at least they gave us an idea of where we were in the pack. I wasn't try to win the entire race but I wanted to beat my pace from ten years ago. This frustrated me as I ended up just ahead of the strollers and the walkers. On a similar note, the pace timing is wrong on the results page. I used the Under Armour app to track my pace and it showed a significant difference than the given time. My friend and I also plugged our race times into a pace calculator which confirmed our times. This was also the first time I stayed for the post-race events. I thought the energy was great! The entertainment, the food, the snacks, it was like a party. Overall, I thought the event was great. I'm looking forward to next year.

The only thing I think could be improved was the awards I think 1st-10th place should be awarded or at least 1st-8th, or 1st-3rd place not just 1st-2nd.

I have run this race most years since it was started (missed a few when I was hurt or out of town). As long as I'm in town I will always run this one as a way to support those who played such important roles on 9/11 and who continue to do so every day, as well as to honor the memory of those who lost their lives that day. I've lived in Arlington for 13/14 years now and this race is an important neighborhood event to me (another race that is important to me that I run every year (Race for the Cure) ended up on the same day as the 9/11 race this year and so I did both because I couldn't leave one out).

I wish I could have stayed but my 14 year old nephew HAD to go see a movie with me. Past post-race has been great, and I'm sorry I missed this one. I think starting the pre-race ceremonies early is a good idea, to prevent long-winded dissertations delaying the start too much.

This was my first time doing this race and I really enjoyed it. It was well-organized and convenient, and the beer and food was a great treat. Having grown up in the suburbs of NYC, I knew many people who perished on 9/11. I was looking g for a special way to "celebrate" the anniversary and this race was the answer. I look forward to running it next year!

Another great run! I started at the back of the pack this year, and think you need to include more speakers back there. We couldn't really hear what was happening up front. During the moment of silence, there were several groups of people still gabbing away. They didn't even hear the announcement for silence. The other thing I want to bring attention to is the MC... the guy with the microphone. He just wasn't funny, and verged many times on being inappropriate with his jokes.

Great event but one complaint. Too many walkers and a few slow strollers blocked the runners who were not up front. I did see a sign for walkers and strollers at the rear in the starting area, but evidently not everyone paid attention. Thus I probably ran an extra one k just weaving around big groups blocking the way, and I would have preferred just to run more with out obstacles. I participated in this race for the first 7 or 8 years and I recall more signs to guide slow runners, faster runners, etc, to stage before the start. I had to stop running for a couple years due to an injury, so I have not been here for a while. If the signs were still there this year, I missed them and many people must have ignored them. Overall a wonderful event and a great cause.

This is by far our favorite local 5k and we have been running it for the last 7 years. I liked the color of the shirts this year but miss the tech neon ones from years passed. Only disappoint this year was the food lines. It was not fun waiting in a very long, slow, poor coordinated line for food after running. However the beer was plentiful and cold :). Overall still my favorite !!!

Best race after party! - by , 09/12/2017
5/ 5stars
As always, this was a wonderful event that we look forward to every year! If I have a complaint it is that consistently, year over year, there are WALKERS who start amongst the faster runners. I ran with a stroller and have been burned by this in the past (Last year I started toward the back as it is suggested for people with stroller and it was highly dangerous for me to be dodging walkers while pushing a stroller). This year I decided to line up with my pace group (between 8-9mm) even though I had a stroller. Once again, there were multiple walkers in the first quarter mile of the race!! It is truly a safety issue that should be addressed in my opinion.

It was my pleasure to support The Arlington service men and women while remembering 9/11. May we never forget. This is a nice run. If your looking to run a personal best you can do it here. I did. The course has a slight up hill to reach the first mile. Then you continue on a slight down hill for what seems to be about a mile. Then the course levels off. about the last 1/4 mile is a slight up hill toward the finish line. It's a pleasure to run around the Pentagon.

A like some of the organization that has been implemented lately (marker flags, current race rout, registration process). Though I like the idea of making it a larger celebration (dancing, funny DJ), I'm not sure that it keeps the spirit of the race which was always collegial, but more oriented towards a respectful atmosphere for those who died). Also liked the vendors

I have run countless races, 5ks, marathons, OCRs and this was so well organized for the amount of participants and the distance of race. The amount of participants was similar to a marathon and the organizers did such a wonderful job with every aspect! Registration, timing, badge check and the free food after! Kudos to an extremely successful race! One suggestion would be more signage outside for where to go for bib pick up and bag check. All staff was very knowledgeable but better signs would make it a tad more organized.

Results Slowest ever for this size of race and how long it has been done - by , 09/12/2017
4/ 4stars
Not having live results and not posting results for 24 hrs is crazy in this day and age especially when using chrontrack. Should have QR codes by now as well. Only having 2 deep awards for a 3000 person race is shocking. I'm all for more proceeds going to the charities especially since I was in the Pentagon but really? Awards are cheap: 22 age divisions for 1 more award is $110-$200. You are recouping that with basically 4 onsites. Race course itself was great with good community support. The Governor's long winded speech gave little meaning to what 9/11 really was about and the sacrifice all the 1st responders gave, the victims, or how men and women and their families sacrifice everyday in order to preserve the freedoms we have today such as running in your race...that would have been much nicer instead about hearing what offices he has held and the rest of his speech.

I had a great experience running and after with food and drink but the DJ/ announcer marred the experience. He made crass comments about female runners bodies as they went by, he made racially charged comments, and was overall inappropriate for what is a family event.

I bought parking via Parking Panda at the hotel where event took place and could not park there given the police pylons had closed off access to the parking lot 1.5 hours ahead of race. Please discourage parking there if it will be close; The Governor's speech was too long. Too much down time between national anthem and race start . All racers time there warm-up to allow for some down time but this was too long! Why so long to post photos? Bigger races get the photos up in 24 hours you give yourselves 3 weeks. Too long!

Civilian participant in sincere appreciation of first responders and military personnel. An honor to run alongside and participate in this event with them. Only mild critique is that Gov.

I have actually competed the last three years (2017, 2016, 2015). I took first in the over 70 age group for both the 2015 and 2016 races but only placed third for the 2017. But, being 81 yrs old, that is quite respectable. Good things: The best thing about your race is the shirt. I have run a lot of races but your shirt is the best of the best (design depicted on the shirt and the material - I don't like the techee shirts that have no form). Nice helo fly over, good band, good DJ, lots of food and booze, good package pick-up, etc. Bitches: I didn't like the fact that you didn't post the results at the site prior to the awards ceremony (you did that after the 2015 and 2016 races). There is no reason for me to stick around for the award ceremony if I am not a winner - which I wasn't this year. After a race, at my age, I need to get my aching, old body home for a bath and sleep. The picture taking (of the awardees) during the award ceremony slowed things down too much. The remarks prior to the start of the race was a bit long. Overall: excellent job!

We're looking forward to doing this every year!

I appreciated the level of attention paid to remembering the people affected by the 9-11 attacks. The course was fun and allowed for the space needed to run comfortably among 1000's of my closest friends. The spirit of the after party was high energy and family friendly. The beer and food were very good too. Well done race organizers!

I really enjoyed participating in this race and being able to do something to support organizations helping wounded warriors, our police/fire/rescue, and the Pentagon Memorial. I prefer evening races, so I like the 6pm start time and I probably wouldn't have done it if it was at 8am. It was a well organized event staffed by wonderful volunteers. The race was more competitive than a lot of local road races. The course was mostly flat and easy to follow. It was a fast course! There was a slight uphill near the end of the course and then a downhill and sharp turn just before the finish. Everyone got t-shirts and finishing medals. The post-race food was okay - pizza, burgers, hot-dogs, water, juice, etc. I would have liked bananas or some other fruit option, but I didn't do the race for the food so it's not a big deal. There were free beer tickets for participants, and I personally don't understand encouraging consumption of alcohol to people who are dehydrated and about to drive home, but I guess it makes some people happy and maybe the beer company is helping fund the race. I didn't like that the post-race awards ceremony wasn't scheduled to start until 90 minutes after the start of the race (and then it started even later than that); it is a LONG time to wait if you run a 5K in under 30 minutes and you start getting cold because you've just been sweating but now you're standing still and it's windy and dark.

All went well. This was my 10th Arl 9/11 Race. Every year I think about requesting this: Three deep Age Group Awards. I ask that because recognizing 1st, 2nd and 3rd is standard in larger races. Alternatively if you want to stick with two deep awards, then how about making the age groups in five year spans instead of ten? Thank you for the prompt start time, the awesome post race party and quickly posting results! Personally I think the medal should be for those who want it. At the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Race there is a cost for those wanting medals. It seems reasonable to then put the money saved on medals toward the cause. Last, was very meaningful to see the race dedicated to Harvey Snook and a nice touch to have his mother present. With thanks, Anne Coia 571 236-6466

Love the Race - Keep Shortening the Opening Ceremony - by , 09/12/2017
4/ 4stars
911 Arlington 5K is a Great Race. The course is amazing and a great after party. Love the flag with the fire pole and national anthem etc.. keep those. and the fact proceeds go to help first responders. The opening ceremony is still too long. Maybe push a speech until after the race? It is much shorter than before. But I would rather keep it shorter at the beginning of the race. Love the free beer ... except it is crappy water beer - strongly recommend partnering with one or two local breweries like Port City or Caboose or DC Brau) Even paying one or two dollars a drink to offset the extra cost would be preferable to crappy water beer. Cool Race Medal: Like the solid medal construction ... maybe work on the design a bit more... contest perhaps? Overall a great race keep it up! Also announcer was hilarious this year!

This was my first 5K and it was lots of fun! I really enjoyed the speakers, helicopters, American flag display and the overall atmosphere. I also think that the volunteers cheering us along the way were a nice touch. There were a few items that could use improvement: 1) The stage for the speakers needs to be higher so people can see them, 2) The DJ was really loud - I think that his volume could be turned down and the constant commentary was not necessary, especially post-race, 3) Communication leading up to the event. A reminder email would have been nice, 4) More signage for additional restrooms or a volunteer directing people. Leading up to the race, the girls bathroom line was very long. Eventually a hotel staff person came by the tell us there were bathrooms in another location. I loved the shirts but the metals were just okay.

Loved the course, the energy, the cause, and the fun food booths afterwards. Long-sleeved t-shirts were great, but the medal is totally unnecessary - I would have preferred the cost of the medal be saved and contributed to the Arlington police. The race results were wacky, though, including a phantom runner who was NOT actually in the race but who supposedly won the 30-39 women's first place slot... but who mysteriously was not in the overall female finishers list. The 3rd and 4th place overall women's finishers were also reversed. Finally, it seemed strange to have to wait +90 minutes from the start time for the award ceremony. Why such a long delay? Thanks for organizing.

First 5k, and for a good cause too. Fairly well organized, space to move around at your own pace, and eager attains at the beginning/end and half way point. Pre race was a solemn remembrance of 9/11 and those that served, Post race felt like a party.

Easy to register. Easy parking. Good course. Great event! Third year in a row participating and I will be participating again next year! Only thing I would like changed is to go back to the 2015 shirt material (sweat wicking) vs the cotton material in 2016 & 2017.

Great race, this was my 6th year. The course, shirts, food and overall atmosphere is amazing. My only complaint is the DJ during the post race.. .just play music man. He kept talking over the music and it was super annoying to have conversations.

I've done this race 5+ years and have enjoyed it every time. Most of those years, we've had a company team. Planning, registration, location, course, and pre/post race are all very good. My only complaint is that the announcer during the post-race talks way to much. Stick to the music. Everything else is great.

Overall, it was well put together. However, for a crowd of this size, the restroom availability was rather lacking. Even a group of porto-johns outside would have alleviated the situation inside somewhat.

No better way to take a moment to remember the brave first responders from 9/11. The race is incredibly moving and a great way for the community to come together to see the people who do put their lives on the line everyday.

This race was great is every way. The packet pickup was easy and well organized. The course was well marked. Running around the Pentagon on closed highways is something you can't ever do - legally at least! After the race the food and drinks, especially the beer, were great no matter what your appetite. Flyovers by helicopters and other small touches really made this race fitting and poignant to all those affected by 9/11. Would highly recommend
One of the best 5Ks you'll ever run - by , 09/11/2017
5/ 5stars
I have run this race 7 times and it never disappoints. You can't beat rounding the first corner and seeing the Pentagon expanse in front of you. Not only is this race in commemoration of the first responders of 9/11, the race is extremely well run and the post-race party is the best of any 5K I have ever seen. It's also an enormous race for a 5K yet still feels very manageable. As a local first responder, we love to compete with our colleagues in other jurisdictions and to remember our colleagues on 9/11.
Awesome course - by , 09/10/2017

Description

The Arlington Police, Fire & Sheriff 9/11 Memorial Race was born from an idea to start a road race after two Arlington County Police Officers had returned from a similar road race in Buffalo, New York. The first Arlington 9/11 Race was held with 2600 runners, and raised approximately $40,000.

Good race this year. For such s small race, they still encourage people to get into their corrals too early, but not as bad as years passed between corral lineup and race start. Walkers continue to lineup in front corrals creating a potential hazard to themselves and the hundreds of faster people behind them. Great post race atmosphere. Cool vendors. Beer!!! Lastly, the shirts were uncomfortable this year. They kind of stick to your back.

This was an amazing experience for my first 5k. It was very organized and the atmosphere was great. It felt good to contribute to families and walk for such a memorable horrific event. 9/11 was a devastating day that being part of this 5k event felt good to give back. I am hooked on this 5k now.

I have ran various 5k in the past but this was the first race that I participated in were the event was organized, the course was well thought (running by Arlington/Pentagon), and every few turns there was a group of people cheering me on. Band playing patriotic music, football/cheerleaders giving high fives or offering words of encouragement, DJ music could be heard throughout the race which made it go by fairly quick. Although the best was running alongside various recruits yelling hilarious things. It was an honor to run with Heroes and I cannot wait to register for next year. This time I will bring my family. (side note: the fire engines, SWAT cars, and motorcycles is any little boy's dream...I didn't know how family friendly it would be until after my husband and I arrived).

When I counted my medals at home I didn't realize this was my 8th race. I started running for personal reasons but now I run for the heroes and their families. Plus the after party is always fun! The DJ / dancing is entertaining and so were the food (blue dog BBQ ) and beverages. My gluten free friend wished there had been cider or wine for her. The ACPD is a class act and feel like family after all these years ( thank you Dianne, Mark and Sean!)

I ran this 5K six years ago and came back to run it this year. Its very inspiring, love the involvement of law enforcement. Give me tremendous pride to see them out there, this event should be replicated not just for 9-11. This motivates me to support Law enforcement even more, I would gladly run every single race to support the departments. I strongly believe our departments need more community support and empowerment in order to continue to make our cities and communities safer so I would love to support more races of this nature and I would gladly pay more maybe $50 buck or $60 bucks to race. I would suggest the pricing that you have but add an option as a Volunteer fee or greater than the $35 or $40 bucks you charge. I would have given $100 to help contribute more. Just an idea! : )

I loved this race!
Packet pick-up was easy with lots of pick up time options.
Pre-race -- I greatly appreciated the water available before the race & photo opportunity with the American Flag & Fire trucks.
Race -- I enjoyed the course relatively "flat" so it was easy for all ability levels & I loved running around the Pentagon.
Finish line & Post-race -- Finish line was easy & not too crowded. Post-race, it was very easy to get water, beer, food. I loved the DJ & the fun, friendly atmosphere created for participants & families.

Overall a well-run event. It's just tough to be moved to the starting coral 30-40 minutes before the race starts and lose all the warm up effort. Can we streamline the opening ceremonies somehow?

I have taken part in the race for many years and love the event, what it stands for and the blend of people that participate. In my opinion it's by far the best 5k event and I try to encourage others to attend.

Observations this year:

Bag check
While packet bags were clear, I don't believe there was a bag-check this year. This caused some last-minute stress. It also makes it less accessible for people who don't have supporters who can watch their bags during the race. It's possible there was a bag check, if there was, I couldn't locate it.

Course Map - It could be due to security or other factors but any race should attempt a course map and indicate it is subject to change. At least then participants can identify where they are in the course based off that.

Team Management
It may be due to transitioning to new third party/parties but I didn't receive any emails when participants joined my team. This led me to have to cross-check my entire department against the registered users to identify my signed up members. Even if the email worked, all team captains/managers should have an ability to view the members of their team and issue team emails.

While these were some negatives this year, my overall view is still very positive. The event was well run, fun and managed well on the day.

Thank you and looking forward to participating next year!

John O'Sullivan

This is my favorite race every year -- considering the purpose of the race, the pre-race commemoration of the events of 9-11, the historic nature of the course, the levelness of the course, the comraderie of the runners during the race, the after-race party and treats (with pulled pork this time; over the top), and the quick results; even the awards (great for displaying in your office!) are great. And this year, perfect weather. In years past there were technical long sleeve T shirts, which are not that useful; this year they were cotton, much more useful during the year. Everyone involved in the organization of this race is to be commended.

Incredibly well organized and administered year after year. But PLEASE cut down on the opening remarks that seem to get longer every year. Start the speechifying as people are walking to the line, have the color guard and National Anthem, then start the race. It's become a bit of a joke: will we survive all the talking and hot air from the podium?
Otherwise, one of my favorites.

This was my first time running in this event. The Arlington Police/Fire/Sheriff 5K is a great family friendly 5K for all runners. Most 5Ks don't provide medals, food, and drinks, this event does! The price is very reasonable and the cause is priceless. Thank you to all the men and women who work in a first responder career.

This was a very well organized small race. The packet pickup process was fast and efficient. The course was well marked and there were sufficient volunteers and water stations for the short distance. The process of collecting the medal and a bottle of water (for starters) after crossing the finish line was very efficient.

Initially, there was a pretty long line for food. Once one of the staff members/volunteers indicated there were two lines for food, the line moved rather quickly. The post-race street party was nice and the host/MC was very entertaining. Parking for the race was a painless process.

I truly enjoyed this race and plan to do it again next year. Never realized it was being done for the last 15 years.

My recommendations would be to have a runners only area for food and drinks and a separate area for spectators/non-runners to purchase food and drink items. Also, maybe instead of water after crossing the finish line, volunteers can hand out a Gatorade.

Aside from the fact that so many entrances to the Hotel area were closed before 4:30, with no signs to direct us as to where to park, everything else was excellent! This was my very first 5K!
Things ran very smoothly, and right on schedule. There was plenty of security, and the location circling the Pentagon was awe inspiring!
The Shirts are fantastic, and thee Medal a definite keeper!!!

Great Job by all!

Arlington knows ow to put on a terrific race experience. First, the ties to first responders and the 9-11 attacks make this a highly emotional event for all the participants. But in addition, it is well organized from start to finish, the location and layout works well, and pre-race and onsite support is extraordinary. Also, the food and drinkn is good and plentiful, music and DJ are fun, etc... It is a great time and I like forward toparticiapting eveyr year. I just wish my running times were improving...

Patriotic, worthy cause bringing together civilian, first responders, military, law enforcement. Just as 9/11 impacted everyone individually but brought us together, so does this race experience. Excellent and easy pick up, racing, post race. Only problem was lack of bathrooms for the significant number of people. Only bathroom available was the hotel 3 stall bathroom with a troublesome and exceedingly long wait.

This is a well - organised race as always. I started running this last year after hearing it from a friend. Definitely glad i came back this year. Everywhere from packet pickup, the race route, beginning of the race to the after party was amazing.

My old negative this year is the DJ they hired for the race. I would recommend having a little talk with this person regarding appropriate choice of songs and things to say at a 9/11 memorial run. I was absolutely astonished to hear some of the stuff on the speakers coming from him.

I would have given 5 stars otherwise if not for this DJ. I hope the people in charge of putting this race together get to see this survey results and act duly upon it.

The 9-11 race is the most memorable one of the year for me being surrounded by patriots and everyday heros who gather to honor and remember those fallen victims and first responders. Perfect location near the Pentagon, easy track, love the tees, and what fun at both the beginning and the end. Recommend selling long sleeved onesies of the 9-11 emblem for the little ones. The volunteers and sponsors put on a A+ event. Thanks for all your incredible hard work! Never forget!

I ran this race for the first time nine and ten years ago. I remember the course going up a ramp and through a tunnel, then finally rounding a corner and seeing the finish line. The course has changed since then but I like how it ends. Coming up the ramp then seeing the finish line inspires you to keep going and pushes you to finish strong.

I did not like the starting points. In the past you had pace times positioned, I don't know if people actually lined up correctly, but at least they gave us an idea of where we were in the pack. I wasn't try to win the entire race but I wanted to beat my pace from ten years ago. This frustrated me as I ended up just ahead of the strollers and the walkers. On a similar note, the pace timing is wrong on the results page. I used the Under Armour app to track my pace and it showed a significant difference than the given time. My friend and I also plugged our race times into a pace calculator which confirmed our times.
This was also the first time I stayed for the post-race events. I thought the energy was great! The entertainment, the food, the snacks, it was like a party. Overall, I thought the event was great. I'm looking forward to next year.

The only thing I think could be improved was the awards I think 1st-10th place should be awarded or at least 1st-8th, or 1st-3rd place not just 1st-2nd.

I have run this race most years since it was started (missed a few when I was hurt or out of town). As long as I'm in town I will always run this one as a way to support those who played such important roles on 9/11 and who continue to do so every day, as well as to honor the memory of those who lost their lives that day. I've lived in Arlington for 13/14 years now and this race is an important neighborhood event to me (another race that is important to me that I run every year (Race for the Cure) ended up on the same day as the 9/11 race this year and so I did both because I couldn't leave one out).

I wish I could have stayed but my 14 year old nephew HAD to go see a movie with me. Past post-race has been great, and I'm sorry I missed this one. I think starting the pre-race ceremonies early is a good idea, to prevent long-winded dissertations delaying the start too much.

This was my first time doing this race and I really enjoyed it. It was well-organized and convenient, and the beer and food was a great treat. Having grown up in the suburbs of NYC, I knew many people who perished on 9/11. I was looking g for a special way to "celebrate" the anniversary and this race was the answer. I look forward to running it next year!

This is one of the best 5k races I have run. The design and quality of the medal left a little to be desired but the shirt, pre-race, and post-race activities were the best I have experienced. The atmosphere was also very pleasant and friendly.

I am a retired Army vet....I did the Army 10 miler and the Marine Corps Marathon. ...this was by far the absolute best race I have participated in! !! The staff and volunteers were very helpful and nice. I was able to get my number at the race with plenty of time to stretch. after I completed the 3 miles. ..I didn't want to leave. plenty of food and drinks. it was great. I am signing my entire family up next year.

great job guys! !!!

Another great run!
I started at the back of the pack this year, and think you need to include more speakers back there. We couldn't really hear what was happening up front. During the moment of silence, there were several groups of people still gabbing away. They didn't even hear the announcement for silence.

The other thing I want to bring attention to is the MC... the guy with the microphone. He just wasn't funny, and verged many times on being inappropriate with his jokes.

Great event but one complaint. Too many walkers and a few slow strollers blocked the runners who were not up front. I did see a sign for walkers and strollers at the rear in the starting area, but evidently not everyone paid attention. Thus I probably ran an extra one k just weaving around big groups blocking the way, and I would have preferred just to run more with out obstacles.


I participated in this race for the first 7 or 8 years and I recall more signs to guide slow runners, faster runners, etc, to stage before the start. I had to stop running for a couple years due to an injury, so I have not been here for a while. If the signs were still there this year, I missed them and many people must have ignored them.

Overall a wonderful event and a great cause.

This is by far our favorite local 5k and we have been running it for the last 7 years. I liked the color of the shirts this year but miss the tech neon ones from years passed. Only disappoint this year was the food lines. It was not fun waiting in a very long, slow, poor coordinated line for food after running. However the beer was plentiful and cold :). Overall still my favorite !!!

It was great! Thank you! Would be nice to run through the Pentagon parking lot like the course was several years ago. Also the bagpipe player should be under the bridge so the sound echos (would add dramatic effect)

As always, this was a wonderful event that we look forward to every year! If I have a complaint it is that consistently, year over year, there are WALKERS who start amongst the faster runners. I ran with a stroller and have been burned by this in the past (Last year I started toward the back as it is suggested for people with stroller and it was highly dangerous for me to be dodging walkers while pushing a stroller). This year I decided to line up with my pace group (between 8-9mm) even though I had a stroller. Once again, there were multiple walkers in the first quarter mile of the race!! It is truly a safety issue that should be addressed in my opinion.

It was my pleasure to support The Arlington service men and women while remembering 9/11. May we never forget.

This is a nice run. If your looking to run a personal best you can do it here. I did. The course has a slight up hill to reach the first mile. Then you continue on a slight down hill for what seems to be about a mile. Then the course levels off. about the last 1/4 mile is a slight up hill toward the finish line.

It's a pleasure to run around the Pentagon.

A like some of the organization that has been implemented lately (marker flags, current race rout, registration process).

Though I like the idea of making it a larger celebration (dancing, funny DJ), I'm not sure that it keeps the spirit of the race which was always collegial, but more oriented towards a respectful atmosphere for those who died).

Also liked the vendors

I have run countless races, 5ks, marathons, OCRs and this was so well organized for the amount of participants and the distance of race. The amount of participants was similar to a marathon and the organizers did such a wonderful job with every aspect! Registration, timing, badge check and the free food after! Kudos to an extremely successful race! One suggestion would be more signage outside for where to go for bib pick up and bag check. All staff was very knowledgeable but better signs would make it a tad more organized.

Not having live results and not posting results for 24 hrs is crazy in this day and age especially when using chrontrack. Should have QR codes by now as well.

Only having 2 deep awards for a 3000 person race is shocking. I'm all for more proceeds going to the charities especially since I was in the Pentagon but really? Awards are cheap: 22 age divisions for 1 more award is $110-$200. You are recouping that with basically 4 onsites.

Race course itself was great with good community support. The Governor's long winded speech gave little meaning to what 9/11 really was about and the sacrifice all the 1st responders gave, the victims, or how men and women and their families sacrifice everyday in order to preserve the freedoms we have today such as running in your race...that would have been much nicer instead about hearing what offices he has held and the rest of his speech.

I've been before, but I couldn't race I had had major surgery. I was there for my daughter and husband who ran the race. This year I was able to run and my daughter n law, son, husband, and mother n law, it was a family affair. It was awesome, touching and just an honor to be there. We all come from medical fields and law enforcement. Can't wait to do it again next year. Keep up the awesome work.

I had a great experience running and after with food and drink but the DJ/ announcer marred the experience. He made crass comments about female runners bodies as they went by, he made racially charged comments, and was overall inappropriate for what is a family event.

I bought parking via Parking Panda at the hotel where event took place and could not park there given the police pylons had closed off access to the parking lot 1.5 hours ahead of race. Please discourage parking there if it will be close;

The Governor's speech was too long. Too much down time between national anthem and race start . All racers time there warm-up to allow for some down time but this was too long!

Why so long to post photos? Bigger races get the photos up in 24 hours you give yourselves 3 weeks. Too long!

Civilian participant in sincere appreciation of first responders and military personnel. An honor to run alongside and participate in this event with them.

Only mild critique is that Gov. Gilmore, who I generally support, was too long-winded and too political during the opening remarks.

Thank you for a great race, my second time participating. I will be back next year.

I have actually competed the last three years (2017, 2016, 2015). I took first in the over 70 age group for both the 2015 and 2016 races but only placed third for the 2017. But, being 81 yrs old, that is quite respectable.

Good things:
The best thing about your race is the shirt. I have run a lot of races but your shirt is the best of the best (design depicted on the shirt and the material - I don't like the techee shirts that have no form).

Nice helo fly over, good band, good DJ, lots of food and booze, good package pick-up, etc.

Bitches:
I didn't like the fact that you didn't post the results at the site prior to the awards ceremony (you did that after the 2015 and 2016 races). There is no reason for me to stick around for the award ceremony if I am not a winner - which I wasn't this year. After a race, at my age, I need to get my aching, old body home for a bath and sleep.

The picture taking (of the awardees) during the award ceremony slowed things down too much.

The remarks prior to the start of the race was a bit long.

Overall: excellent job!

The weather was perfect and so was this years event. The time, effort and special care to ensure a successful race was seen and felt when you reported to registration.

Special thanks to the Hilton Double Tree for it's continued sponsorship to this Memorial 5K Race. It cannot happen without their support and commitment.

A job well done!

I ran this 5k with my 4 year old and 2 year old. It was early enough that they weren't up past their bedtime, the snacks and volunteers were plentiful, the fire trucks, helicopters, and all emergency personnel who were there were outstanding, and the course was mostly flat and felt very quick. We're looking forward to doing this every year!

This was my first time running the Arlington Police/Fire/Sheriff 9-11 Memorial 5k and I thought it was an absolutely wonderful race. Well organized, well laid out, the course was great and the vibe was patriotic. The firetrucks with the flag were the perfect backdrop. The helicopter flyover was amazing. The bagpiper along the route was really cool. I also liked the beer at the end. :)

I had a great time at the Arlington Police/Fire/Sheriff 9-11 Memorial 5K. The event was well organized, including the physical layout, ceremony, and after party. I appreciated the level of attention paid to remembering the people affected by the 9-11 attacks. The course was fun and allowed for the space needed to run comfortably among 1000's of my closest friends. The spirit of the after party was high energy and family friendly. The beer and food were very good too. Well done race organizers!

I really enjoyed participating in this race and being able to do something to support organizations helping wounded warriors, our police/fire/rescue, and the Pentagon Memorial. I prefer evening races, so I like the 6pm start time and I probably wouldn't have done it if it was at 8am. It was a well organized event staffed by wonderful volunteers. The race was more competitive than a lot of local road races. The course was mostly flat and easy to follow. It was a fast course! There was a slight uphill near the end of the course and then a downhill and sharp turn just before the finish. Everyone got t-shirts and finishing medals. The post-race food was okay - pizza, burgers, hot-dogs, water, juice, etc. I would have liked bananas or some other fruit option, but I didn't do the race for the food so it's not a big deal. There were free beer tickets for participants, and I personally don't understand encouraging consumption of alcohol to people who are dehydrated and about to drive home, but I guess it makes some people happy and maybe the beer company is helping fund the race. I didn't like that the post-race awards ceremony wasn't scheduled to start until 90 minutes after the start of the race (and then it started even later than that); it is a LONG time to wait if you run a 5K in under 30 minutes and you start getting cold because you've just been sweating but now you're standing still and it's windy and dark.

All went well. This was my 10th Arl 9/11 Race. Every year I think about requesting this: Three deep Age Group Awards. I ask that because recognizing 1st, 2nd and 3rd is standard in larger races. Alternatively if you want to stick with two deep awards, then how about making the age groups in five year spans instead of ten?

Thank you for the prompt start time, the awesome post race party and quickly posting results! Personally I think the medal should be for those who want it. At the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Race there is a cost for those wanting medals. It seems reasonable to then put the money saved on medals toward the cause.

Last, was very meaningful to see the race dedicated to Harvey Snook and a nice touch to have his mother present.

With thanks,

The race is well organized and provides a great atmosphere for hanging out with friends and fellow runners after the race. Food and drink are also pretty good. I think there are abundant opportunities to involve more community support. For example, other HS bands could be invited and or drum line bands.

I have completed many Arlington 9-11 5k's each experience was personal. All have been very well organized, the "T" shirts are excellent, the web site provides all the information a participant could want and the medals are icing on the cake. I have never walked away post event disappointed, but rather feeling really good inside. Too bad the event size could not be bigger.

Love the Race - Keep Shortening the Opening Ceremony

911 Arlington 5K is a Great Race. The course is amazing and a great after party. Love the flag with the fire pole and national anthem etc.. keep those. and the fact proceeds go to help first responders.
The opening ceremony is still too long. Maybe push a speech until after the race? It is much shorter than before. But I would rather keep it shorter at the beginning of the race.

Love the free beer ... except it is crappy water beer - strongly recommend partnering with one or two local breweries like Port City or Caboose or DC Brau) Even paying one or two dollars a drink to offset the extra cost would be preferable to crappy water beer.

Cool Race Medal: Like the solid medal construction ... maybe work on the design a bit more... contest perhaps?

Overall a great race keep it up!

Also announcer was hilarious this year!

The race was well-organized, with a scenic (and relatively flat) course. Great music along the way to keep runners pumped-up. Excellent DJ. The organizers made sure that runners (and walkers) of all levels could partake and feel included. Amazing food during post-race party (no bananas here!). Great job to organizers, sponsors and volunteers. Will be back next year.

Great event. This was my second time doing this 5k and it was as good this year as last. Only one complaint - and I admit, it is a bit whiney. Not much to eat and drink for us celiac sufferers. Other than that, though, it's a great event.

This was my first 5K and it was lots of fun! I really enjoyed the speakers, helicopters, American flag display and the overall atmosphere. I also think that the volunteers cheering us along the way were a nice touch.

There were a few items that could use improvement: 1) The stage for the speakers needs to be higher so people can see them, 2) The DJ was really loud - I think that his volume could be turned down and the constant commentary was not necessary, especially post-race, 3) Communication leading up to the event. A reminder email would have been nice, 4) More signage for additional restrooms or a volunteer directing people. Leading up to the race, the girls bathroom line was very long. Eventually a hotel staff person came by the tell us there were bathrooms in another location.

I loved the shirts but the metals were just okay.

Loved the course, the energy, the cause, and the fun food booths afterwards. Long-sleeved t-shirts were great, but the medal is totally unnecessary - I would have preferred the cost of the medal be saved and contributed to the Arlington police.

The race results were wacky, though, including a phantom runner who was NOT actually in the race but who supposedly won the 30-39 women's first place slot... but who mysteriously was not in the overall female finishers list. The 3rd and 4th place overall women's finishers were also reversed.

Finally, it seemed strange to have to wait +90 minutes from the start time for the award ceremony. Why such a long delay?

Thanks for organizing.

This was the second year I ran the race and had a great time. I wish there were port-a-potties because the lines for the bathroom were a bit long, especially for my wife. That is the only complaint I have.

And I beat Sean Spicer by 4 minutes which made me feel really good. And we're in the same age level so there.

The have two suggestions:
1) Add race clocks at the mile markers.
2) Partner with a local brewery for a beer in addition to Miller Lite. There are plenty of great ones in DC and VA that I am sure would be willing to support the cause.

I've been an arlington resident for a decade, now, but only a "runner" for a year or two. I've done a few Pacers-sponsored events, and they're ok. Thanks for a great race. That DJ, though...yikes. And I don't need a medal. At least with a t-shirt, I'll wear it again.

First 5k, and for a good cause too. Fairly well organized, space to move around at your own pace, and eager attains at the beginning/end and half way point. Pre race was a solemn remembrance of 9/11 and those that served, Post race felt like a party.

Only thing I would like changed is to go back to the 2015 shirt material (sweat wicking) vs the cotton material in 2016 & 2017.

Great race, this was my 6th year. The course, shirts, food and overall atmosphere is amazing. My only complaint is the DJ during the post race.. .just play music man. He kept talking over the music and it was super annoying to have conversations.

Fun race but surprised/disappointed there was no clear marking of the 1 and 2 mile marks, much less someone providing splits at those points.

I've done this race 5+ years and have enjoyed it every time. Most of those years, we've had a company team. Planning, registration, location, course, and pre/post race are all very good. My only complaint is that the announcer during the post-race talks way to much. Stick to the music. Everything else is great.

Overall, it was well put together. However, for a crowd of this size, the restroom availability was rather lacking. Even a group of porto-johns outside would have alleviated the situation inside somewhat.

No better way to take a moment to remember the brave first responders from 9/11. The race is incredibly moving and a great way for the community to come together to see the people who do put their lives on the line everyday.

This race was great is every way. The packet pickup was easy and well organized. The course was well marked. Running around the Pentagon on closed highways is something you can't ever do - legally at least!

After the race the food and drinks, especially the beer, were great no matter what your appetite. Flyovers by helicopters and other small touches really made this race fitting and poignant to all those affected by 9/11. Would highly recommend

I have run this race 7 times and it never disappoints. You can't beat rounding the first corner and seeing the Pentagon expanse in front of you. Not only is this race in commemoration of the first responders of 9/11, the race is extremely well run and the post-race party is the best of any 5K I have ever seen. It's also an enormous race for a 5K yet still feels very manageable. As a local first responder, we love to compete with our colleagues in other jurisdictions and to remember our colleagues on 9/11.
