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.

Background: The virtual Run in Remembrance will be hosted as the Virginia Tech community reflects on the vibrant lives of the 32 students and faculty who were tragically taken from us on April 16, 2007.

Media Interview:  Will Trent from Virginia Tech’s Recreational Sports department is available for interviews in advance of this year’s 3.2 Run in Remembrance. Reporters, editors or producers interested in securing an interview should contact Bill Foy by email, or by phone at 540-998-0288.
