As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact our country and our community, the National D-Day Memorial Foundation continues to evaluate the evolving health crisis. With guidance from the CDC and officials from the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Foundation is diligently working to protect its visitors, staff, and volunteers.
On May 16, the National D-Day Memorial will still be hosting the Armed Forces Day 5K; however, we have moved this event to a virtual race due to guidelines regarding large gatherings by the CDC.
As a current participant, you have the following options:
Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you have about the virtual race. We know that it will be a different race than many are used to, but as we know this race has never been about medals—it’s been about supporting the National D-Day Memorial and those who defended, and continue to defend, our freedom.
We appreciate your continued support of our nation’s heroes and the National D-Day Memorial’s mission of educating the next generation about their valor, fidelity, and sacrifice. And, we hope that you will join us virtually as we run to support our troops past and present!

So, What Is A Virtual Race?
For years, many races have offered a virtual runner option that allowed runners to participate no matter where they lived and to still support the race. Runners can sign up for the race, post their times online after running a 5K, and receive a 2020 Armed Forces Day 5K race shirt by mail.
