Thankful Three Miler Graphic

Sunday, November 13 at 1:00 p.m. on the Virginia Tech Cross Country Course


Run/walk three miles and help us raise funds for the Veterans Hospital while reflecting on what you are thankful for! The run/walk will start and finish on Smithfield Rd. near the Corps of Cadets obstacle course. The event will be untimed and all event finishers will receive an award!

As part of this event, Recreational Sports is partnering with the Corps of Cadets to collect non-perishable food items for The Market, a resource designed to provide food assistance to Virginia Tech students who have a hard time obtaining regular, healthy meals.  Participants are encouraged to bring a food item with them to donate on November 13.
