Join Us for the 23rd Annual Tunnel to Towers 5K: Honoring Heroes, Supporting Families

Registration is now open for the 23rd annual Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk in New York City, set for Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9:30 a.m. ET. This event commemorates the heroism of firefighter Stephen Siller, who ran through the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel to the Twin Towers on 9/11.

Starting with 1,500 participants in 2002, the event has grown to over 40,000 runners in 2023, making it one of America's top 5K runs. The course begins at the Brooklyn portal of the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel and ends at West Street and Murray Street in Manhattan, totaling approximately 3.5 miles.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation, born from the 9/11 tragedy, provides mortgage-free homes to Gold Star families and fallen first responder families, and builds smart homes for injured veterans and first responders. They are also committed to eradicating veteran homelessness.

This year, the foundation honors NYPD Detective First Grade Jonathan Diller, who was killed in Far Rockaway, Queens. The foundation has paid off the mortgage on his family's home.

The event pays tribute to the 343 FDNY firefighters, law enforcement officers, and thousands of civilians who died on 9/11, as well as the 7,000 service members who have lost their lives since.

Online registration closes on Sept. 28 at 4:00 p.m. ET. No same-day registration is available. Adult registration is $65 with a time chip and $55 without. Adult walkers are $55. An additional $10 is charged for children under 14 requesting a time chip.

Proceeds from the event support the foundation’s programs for first responders and injured service members.
