The Tunnel To Towers Run is an event dedicated to the memory and heroic efforts of Stephen Siller of the FDNY. When Stephen Siller’s personal vehicle was prohibited from entering the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel immediately following the 9/11 attacks on the WTC, Stephen Siller then raced on foot through the Battery Tunnel towards the WTC site with his gear strapped to his back.
The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel connects Brooklyn and Manhattan and travels under the East River. The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel is the longest continuous underwater vehicular tunnel in North America. The Tunnel to Towers Run retraces Stephen Siller’s footsteps on 9/11/2001. Read more on the Tunnel to Towers website.
