Thankful Three-Miler

Thankful Three-Miler

Virginia Tech Recreational Sports is hosting an outdoor run/walk on the VT Cross Country Course on Sunday, November 15. The Thankful Three-Miler is an in-person event with a staggered start to ensure that safety guidelines are met.  Participants will enter the course in groups of 5, every 5 minutes between 1-4 p.m. 

Get outside, move, and begin to reflect on the things you are thankful for before Thanksgiving Break. Registration is $20 per person and students and staff signing up will be given the option of the time slot they prefer to start. Participants will receive a long sleeve event t-shirt and there will be raffle prizes that have been generously donated by Runabout Sports in Blacksburg. Once participants have started running/walking on the course, they will be allowed to remove their face covering if they choose. 

As part of this event, Recreational Sports is partnering with VT Engage to collect non-perishable food items for two local community partners; Plenty! and Future Economy Collective.  Participants are encouraged to bring a food item with them to donate on November 15th.  Hokies that want to donate that aren’t participating in the run/walk can bring their food donations to the McComas Hall Lobby during the week of November 8-14.


The $20 registration fee includes this shirt, a race packet, and entry to win raffle prizes provided by Runabout Sports.
