Following a tragic plane crash in 2008 that left Barker with severe burns and injuries, his future mobility was uncertain. After spending 11 weeks in the hospital and undergoing 27 surgeries, Barker was finally able to return home, though he faced many challenges ahead.

“After my accident in 2008, more than 70% of my body was burnt”, said Barker. “I was told by doctors that I may never be able to walk or drum again, so I set out to prove everybody wrong, including myself. What started with short walks turned into short runs every day. This past year, I ran my first half marathon and participated in a few 5Ks. The running community is massive and I loved how everyone from all walks of life ran together and supported one another. This is what Run Travis Run was built off of and we’re only getting started.”

Now in the best shape he’s been in years, Barker is looking to share his passion with the fans. Run Travis Run is coming to both New York City and Los Angeles, with the New York City event happening at Citi Field on the morning of blink-182’s One More Time Tour show in the same place that evening. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m., and athletes of all levels are invited.

Event Highlights:

  • Morning Run: Join Travis Barker and fellow enthusiasts for a timed run at Citi Field in Queens, NY, at 9 a.m. Whether a seasoned runner or just starting, this event is for everyone.
  • Wellness Experience: From fitness classes to mindfulness workshops, participants will have exclusive access to top brands and experiential activations throughout the morning.
  • Exclusive Mementos: In addition to earning a finisher time at the end of the run, participants will receive a limited-edition shirt and medal as part of the inaugural event.
  • Day-in-the-Life of Travis Barker: Experience a day-in-the-life of Blink 182’s legendary drummer by participating in Travis Barker’s pre-concert routine centered around running, health and wellness.
