Registration open for 3.2-Mile Run in Remembrance on April 16

From: Recreational Sports

Registration is now open for Virginia Tech’s annual 3.2-Mile Run in Remembrance, which will take place on Saturday, April 16.

The event will begin with a moment of silence at 9:43 a.m. to honor and remember the vibrant lives of the 32 students and faculty who were tragically taken from us in 2007.

The event’s  3.2-mile loop around the Blacksburg campus begins and ends on the Virginia Tech Drillfield near the April 16 Memorial and passes by landmarks such as the Duck Pond, the Grove, the Virginia Tech Pylons, and will take runners and walkers through Lane Stadium.

Virtual participation opportunities will be available in addition to the in-person event. Virtual participants are encouraged to move in a way that is meaningful to them and to share photos using the hashtag “#VT32Run” on Instagram and Twitter. Encouragement and communication will also be shared through the respective Facebook Event.

Event t-shirts will be available for purchase at cost with shipping and in-person pickup options. Participants who wish to guarantee that their shirt arrives in time for the event should purchase by March 28. More information can be found on Rec Sports’ website.
