Rutgers Unite Half Marathon Virtual Run

Rutgers Unite Half Marathon Virtual Run



We are, like you, disappointed we can’t run “united” on April 19th as planned, but we’re thrilled you want to run the 2020 Unite Half marathon virtually! Ours is a more casual “run when you can, run when you want” event. It should be more about celebrating your love of running and wellness while getting some much-deserved swag.

While we all love running, the current state of our nation is asking all of us to “stay at home” so we can minimize the spread of COVID 19. We are encouraging this policy for all runners. So please use good judgement, good hygiene and proper social distancing. Please do not organize and run in groups. As enjoyable as that is now is not the time.

As a 2020 entrant, there is nothing you need to do to enter the virtual run. You can run now or you can even wait until the summer. Your shirt and finish medal will be mailed to you in the next few weeks. Share your swag on facebook we’d love to see you with it! Tag @UniteHalfMarathon #runrutgersrah

You don’t need to log your miles (do 1 mile, 4.97 miles (8k) or go for the full half marathon) or your time. Just go out and simply enjoy the run. Start anytime – end anytime. Think about April 19, 2020 and visualize yourself running through Rutgers campus. Whether this was your first or your 1,000th race, feel that incredible exhilaration of crossing the finish line.

We need to feel good now. We need to share well-being and good health. And even though we can’t be together socially, we need to share positive energy through our thoughts and actions.  Life is simply energy – positive and negative. You think positive. You get positive.

We truly wish we could all be running together on 4.19.20 and appreciate your understanding through what are extremely trying times for all of us.
