About This Activity

The Hedwig Memorial Run is the fourth event of 2014 organized by the Hogwarts Running Club.  It is in honor of one of the most bravest characters in the entire Harry Potter series.  All proceeds go to support of The Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in their battle for "a world without cancer."  Participants will receive an awesome custom medal featuring Hedwig in flight, a custom sublimated neck ribbon, and a personalized digital race bib.  So, register today and help give a big 'Avada Kavadra' to kids' cancer!

Event schedule and times

You can run your virtual race at any location at any time at any's completely up to you!  You can walk, run outside, use a treadmill in the gym, find a trail, use a local track, or participate in another "real-world" race (like the Potter Run, Walk, or Fly 5k in Salt Lake City!) and count it for your virtual race as well!

However, we are asking as many people as possible to complete this 5k at the the time and location of their choosing on July 27th, which is the anniversary of the Battle of the Seven Potters in which Hedwig gave her life to protect Harry. We many not be physically together, but we'll be together in spirit to celebrate this beloved character.

For those who have registered for this event AND for the Potter Run in Salt Lake City on July 31st, that "real-world" event will count as your virtual run as well. You will receive your Hedwig Memorial Run medal at the finish line along with your Potter Run finishers medal!
