National Veterans Memorial and Museum Virtual Run/Walk

Join in across the nation for the National Veterans Memorial and Museum Virtual Run & Walk to honor and remember those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Honor Them Together. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum’s virtual 1 mile, 5k, and 10k run and walk is a family event to honor America’s lost heroes, all servicemen and servicewomen, who died defending our country’s safety and freedom. The event features options to run or walk 1 mile or 5k in honor of a lost loved one in your own life or 10K (6.2 miles) to honor those lost from all 6 branches of service.

I Will Always Remember. In honor of those lost, we encourage you to complete your run or walk during Memorial Day Weekend May 22 – 25, 2020.

We invite everyone nationwide to take part in this 2020 Memorial Day commemoration by sharing who you will never forget. Whether you’re honoring one lost loved one or honoring all the brave service members who died serving our country, we encourage you to use #WeHonorThemTogether and @nationalvmm to share photos, your location, and stories of your participation as well as those being remembered. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum team will not only be monitoring and highlighting the participation across the nation but also the names, ranks, and branches of service of those being honored by their friends and family during this time.


Note, this is a virtual race. Register on or before May 18, to receive your event shirt and items prior to Memorial Day Weekend. If you register between May 19 – 25, we will be mailing items daily but cannot guarantee you will receive them before May 22. We want you to proudly wear your shirt during your run or walk. Encourage your friends and family to participate too! Register today!
