What is a Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk? 
The Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk Series was created to honor the heroic life and death of Stephen Siller, a New York City firefighter (FDNY) who lost his life on September 11, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers. We honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and support our first responders and military who make extraordinary sacrifices in the line of duty! For more information on the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, please visit

This will be our 3rd year in Trinity/Pasco and we are excited to bring together the community to honor first responders and military, to remember 9/11, and to raise funds for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation's programs.

How far is a Tunnel to Towers Run & Walk? 
This is a 5K (3.1 miles) to walk or run this event. Anyone of any age can run, walk, or experience this event.

Where can I pick up my packet?

Pre-race packet pickup will be held on Friday, October 27, 2023 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm at runFIT, located at 18841 SR-54 W, Lutz, FL 33558.  Race-day packet pickup at the race site starts at 7:00 am.

Can I register the day of the run? 
Yes. Registration will open until 8:30am the morning of the run.  Those who wait to register on the day of the race are not guaranteed their t-shirt size. Register early!

When does online registration close?

I am a fast runner. Can I get a front line position? 
Runners predicting a pace faster than a 7 minute/mile will be seeded in the front corral (arrive early).

Will there be awards for running? 
Yes, finisher medals will be given to all participants. The event will be chip timed.  We keep awards very simple since our mission is to honor first responders, most of our awards are based on firefighters, police or military running in gear in the same fashion that Stephen Siller did on 9/11. This event is intended to be an patriotic experience and much more than a run. 

Will water be available? 
Yes, a water station will be available along the route and there will be water available at the start / finish.

What can you bring to the event? Can I run with a stroller, backpack, wheelchair, roller blades, bicycle, etc?
