I can't remember the name of the group, but there is a group of veterans and LEOs who run races in full tactical gear, this was based off of when on 9/11, a LEO (I believe PAPD) ran non stop from the Holland Tunnel to WTC (for those not NYC familiar, that is pretty far) to help and later died in the collapse. On the 9/11 10th anniversary there was a run called the "Tunnel to Towers" that honored this event. I know that the USMS (and probably other agencies too) had LEOs who did this in full tactical gear.
Correction: My mistake, it was a firefighter, Steven Siller, who had just gotten off duty and ran from the Battery Tunnel (which goes to Brooklyn) to WTC in his full gear, he was killed that day.
