Come and join us in remembering not only the nearly 3000 Americans who did not return home to their families after the tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2001, but also those members of our Armed Forces who have given their lives defending our country. In doing so, you will be honoring those who were lost while helping to establish a support system for the families of local public servants, should they make the ultimate sacrifice.

In Downtown Sacramento, the Run To Remember 5K Run/Walk will take place to give those who vowed to “Never Forget” the opportunity to exercise that vow. The 5K run/walk will start at 9:11 a.m. on 9/7, and wind through Downtown Sacramento. At the finish of the race, American flags will be handed to runners at the Tribute site located on Capitol Mall between 6th and 7th Street. Each flag will represent an American who lost their life on 9/11/2001.  Runners will carry the flag they are given and will place it in the Pentagon Shaped Memorial at the "Tribute in the Park".  Each American Flag will be placed next to a name plate engraved with the name of an American who did not return home. When the Run To Remember is complete, nearly 3000 flags will stand united in the Memorial as a tribute to those that were lost.

New this year:

The 2014 Run To Remember will also include a variety of Food Trucks to choose from during the Tribute in the Park. These local area food vendors will be helping raise awareness of this amazing event. Even if you are unable to run this year, please join us at the Tribute in the Park and bring the whole family out to remember and spend the day together.
