Run for the Wild


Run for the Wild was a virtual 5K run/walk (3.1 miles) supporting the Department of Wildlife Resources’ mission to ensure wildlife has healthy places to live and thrive.

All registration proceeds went towards our Restore the Wild initiative to support habitat projects vital for the survival of Virginia’s wildlife.

This inaugural event took place on July 17-19, 2020.
