Event Route
To view the route map click here

The route includes Lane Stadium by entering through the TUNNEL that the football team enters through for every home game. Since this does get narrow and slower, feel free to use the ALTERNATE route and bypass the stadium if you prefer. All runners and walkers will have to use the ALTERNATE ROUTE AFTER 10:30 am.  As long as you pass the stadium by 10:30 am, you can still go through the tunnel.

Please leave your pets at home.  If you do bring a pet, you will need to take the alternate route instead of walking through the stadium. No Pets will be allowed inside the stadium!

Inclement Weather
The event will take place rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, check www.vt.edu for announcements about all of the Day of Remembrance activities and updates.
