Registration for the Arlington Police, Fire & Sheriff 9-11 Memorial 5K Run will get more expensive after today.

The annual race will be held on Sept. 10 this year. Registration is $25 today, $30 from Aug. 5 to Sept. 9 and $35 on race day. Teams (including firefighter, law enforcement and military teams) need to be registered by Sept. 1.

The race will kick off at 6:00 p.m. from the DoubleTree Hotel in Pentagon City (300 Army Navy Drive). Runners will follow a course that will take them past parts of the Pentagon. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attack on the World Trader Center and the Pentagon.

Proceeds from the race will benefit 9-11 related charities, including the Fisher House Foundation, the Wounded Warrior Project, Operation Purple, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and the Pentagon Memorial Fund.

Organizers are looking for volunteers to work on race day. Volunteers will be asked to pass out food and water and assist with other race duties. Anyone interested in volunteering can find more information here.

    Fun race for great cause; meet interesting people, get a long sleeve shirt with the kick ass 9/11 pentagon framed logo, and beer and pizza afterwards.

    I ran it a couple years ago. But I won’t make it this year. I’m doing the Nation’s Triathlon the next morning.

    …VERY MOVING RACE. The race was full of energy and a great way for all to honor the unity of our nation on 9-11. This is one run I would certainly participate in again–if in the area.
