Event cancellations

All Virginia Tech-sponsored events at any location that are scheduled prior to June 10 are being canceled or postponed.

Updated April 2, 8:57 p.m.

The 3.2-Mile Run in Remembrance will be offered as a virtual event for this year. From April 16th-18th, a 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.

The virtual walk/run will be held over a three day period to encourage proper distancing and adherence to state and local guidelines. This event is not supporting physical gatherings and is intended to support social connectedness through physical distancing. 

The virtual option features a printable bib and an option to virtually join other Hokies with details coming soon. Details will be announced on this webpage and on the 2020 Virtual Run in Remembrance Facebook Event.
