8th Annual Hokie Half Marathon and 5K

*** COVID-19 UPDATE: The 8th Annual Hokie Half Marathon will be entirely VIRTUAL due to current conditions and and our commitment to the safety of our community. While this is not the Hokie Half anyone envisioned, we remain excited to connect through the sport of running in new ways as we all adapt to our new normal.

To take part in the 2020 Virtual Hokie Half Marathon and 5k, you will have one month to complete your race -- between September 20th and October 18th, pick the day that works best for your schedule and ensure you have perfect race weather! Once you complete your race within the official race date window, you will report your results on a link right here on the Hokie Half homepage. While there will no longer be cash prizes, there will still be age group awards for the top three in each division as initially planned.
If you haven't already signed up, follow the sign up link HERE. Registration will be open from September 7th to September 20th. No late fee registration will be offered.
  • Half Marathon - $55.00: includes Hokie Bird finisher medal, finisher magnet, long-sleeve performance shirt, and postage
  • Hokie 5K - $35.00: includes Hokie Bird finisher medal, short-sleeve performance shirt, and postage
  • No Frills Half Marathon OR 5k - $10.00: compete virtually with eligibility for age group awards, but does NOT include shirt, medal, or magnet
If you have already signed up, you have the option to participate in the 2020 Virtual Hokie Half Marathon or 5k, defer your entry to 2021, or receive a refund. Please let us know your preference HERE. If you choose to participate in this year's virtual race, you will be refunded the difference of your initial entry and entry to the virtual race. Please submit your intentions by September 20th. If we do not hear back from those who have already registered, you will be refunded.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope all of you are staying healthy, happy, and fit in these challenging times. We'll see you on the virtual starting line!***
