Sandy Hook Elementary Memorial Half Marathon and 5K

My heart just like yours, is broken from the tragedy. So I believe as runners we can make a difference in the lives of those affected even from afar. So this virtual race came about! Let';s run together to help raise money for the families affected by this horrific act!



Any City

This is a virtual half marathon and virtual 5K. Since it is virtual, you can complete it anywhere in the world. You can run, walk, swim, bike, anything you like, and you can complete the 13.1 miles or 5K all at once, over the course of a week, or whenever you can. Please complete all miles between now and Jan 31st. This is on the honor system - you do not have to report your miles.
