Media Advisory: 2021 Virtual 3.2 Run in Remembrance set for April 16-18
The decision to not hold an on-campus event for the second year in a row was made to encourage proper distancing and adherence to state and local public health guidelines related to COVID-19.
Virginia Tech’s 3.2-Mile Run in Remembrance will be offered as a virtual event from April 16-18, 2021. The university is inviting Hokies across the county and around the world to run, walk or jog on their own and post a picture online using #VT32Run.
The decision to not hold on-campus event for the second year in a row was made to encourage proper distancing and adherence to state and local public health guidelines related to COVID-19.
