About the event

Roanoke County Public Schools Education Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit organization, is presenting the 11th Annual Backpack Run. Proceeds will be used to provide financial support for Roanoke County Public Schools education programs including grants for teachers and scholarships for students.

Once again this year we are offering the best of both worlds - in-person and virtual races.

TAKE THE BACKPACK CHALLENGE - participate in both the 5K and 10K to earn not only the two individual finisher medals but a third exclusive Backpack Challenge medal!!

Virtual events can be completed at your own pace!  ANY kind of exercise counts - running, walking, treadmill, bike, elliptical - ANYTHING!!!  Best of all you can do this at your pace - you can do a mile or two at a time and combine those miles over time to meet the requirement for each event or the Backpack Challenge.  Mileage is on the honor system.
