About The Race

Parents, Teachers and Students alike have worked HARD during these challenging times to graduate from preK, Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, High School, College, and beyond this Summer. As graduation ceremonies are being postponed, canceled or severely modified there’s still cause for celebration.

Come run the marathon, half marathon, 10k, 5k or 1 Mile Run to honor the Class of 2021. Your registration will help those in need with 10% of all proceeds automatically going to our two charity partners – No Kid Hungry and Engaging Creative Minds. Each participant will receive the 2021 Graduate Medal, Finisher Diploma and a Customizable Diploma to share with your graduate.

Gratitude For Graduates Medal

2020 Graduate Medal

The Gratitude for Graduates Virtual Run is your opportunity to celebrate the Class of 2021. Every participant that uploads an official finisher time will receive a 2021 Graduate Medal. You can keep the medal for yourself, gift to a friend or purchase an additional medal for your graduate.

Gratitude for Graduates Tee

There are several ways to showcase the hard work of the Class of 2021! One way is the 2021 Gratitude for Graduates Tee! Purchase this fine jersey tee during your registration or add it to your order by filling out the form here. Every graduate deserves to have their achievements showcased and honored and this tee does just that. You can purchase the tee for yourself or a graduate as a gift.

2020 Finisher Diploma

Our GradWeek will take place from June 11 to 18 and will conclude the end of the race. All results will be final and each participant that uploaded their results will receive their 2021 Finisher Diploma. The 2021 Finisher Diploma is acting as your Finisher Certificate and will showcase your personal achievement of the virtual race.

2020 Customizable Diploma

We know many participants will be running to honor the accomplishments of a graduate so we created a Customizable Diploma for our runners to fill out and share with their graduate. Once you upload your results you will receive an email with this PDF attached, ready to be downloaded and customized for your graduate! Show your appreciation for your graduate by including a special message along with the distance and time you ran to honor them.
