Runners honor veterans, victims of 9/11

Nearly 200 runners — some carrying heavy military packs — convened in Reynolds Landing Park along the South Platte River on the morning of Sept. 9 to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed on Sept. 11, 2001.

The 5k race was hosted by the Travis Manion Foundation, named in honor of Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion, who was killed by a sniper in Iraq in 2007. The race also honored veterans, active duty military and first responders, said race committee member Jennifer Brookfield.

The race was one of dozens of 9/11 Heroes Runs held by the foundation around the country since 2007.

“During this divisive time in our country, I'm in awe at how so many communities across the country and around the world will put differences aside and come together to honor all those touched by the events of September 11th, 2001,” said Ryan Manion, president of the Travis Manion Foundation.
