Finish Eliza’s Run

09/09/22 - results submission extended to 09/24/22 Directions


Virtual Run


Friday morning at 4:20 AM, Eliza Fletcher was abducted during her morning run around the University of Memphis campus and later murdered. This virtual run is a way to honor and grieve the loss of Eliza Fletcher. This run is not sanctioned by the family and is not a fundraiser, nor our we accepting any donations. This is a completely free event.

Run anytime you feel safe, anywhere you feel safe, any distance you wish starting Friday morning, September 9, through Sunday evening, September 18. Registration will close on Sunday evening, September 11.

We welcome all runners. If you can not run or are not a runner but would still like to participate, you are more than welcome to walk, cycle, roller skate, swim, etc.. Submit your distance and time here if you would like, and tag your run on social media using #finishelizasrun. You can join us and run as well without registering - this is just an option to provide the community with a larger platform to officially connect through. 

We are encouraging runners to wear a pink top and purple shorts in solidarity with Eliza and what she was wearing on her run.

Run is organized by Jen Scott. I am just a fellow runner who wanted to create a virtual run to "do something" to help us come together, honor Eliza, and mourn.

I am not collecting personal information but after you register, runsignup allows me to see your name, email address, and your age. Again - you do not have to register to participate in a run to honor Eliza.
