About This Event
This event is in honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those who have died fighting and those who continue to fight for our freedom. All proceeds go to Soldiers Angels. The event will take place at Olmos Park on Devine Drive starting at 10PM on 9-8. Teams will run 1 person at a time for one mile loops on well lit, paved bike path. After the loop the next runner will take off and this will continue through the night for 9 hrs and 11 minutes. Solo Ultra runners will run as many miles as possible for the 9hrs 11 minutes. At 7:11 the running stops and runners can cool down. At 7:46 there will be a moment of silence for Flight 11 and the North Tower victims followed by our National Anthem with color guard. Awards will begin to be distributed after that. At 8:03 A moment of silence will be observed for Flight 175 and the victims of the South Tower followed by our Pledge of Allegiance. More awards will be handed out until 8:37 AM where we will observe a moment of silence for Flight 77 and the victims of the Pentagon. America the Beautiful will follow along with final awards and a great breakfast San Antonio style.
