2023 3.2-mile Run in Remembrance

Effective February 1, 2023

Registration is now open for Virginia Tech’s annual 3.2-mile Run in Remembrance, which will take place on Saturday, April 15.

The event will begin with a moment of silence at 9:00 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 on Alumni Mall near Torgersen Bridge, passes by landmarks such the Grove, Lane Stadium, and the Virginia Tech Pylons, and ends at the April 16 Memorial.

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.
