StudentsUnited Virtual Race 20K
This is the 20K version of the StudentsUnited race, a collaboration amongst many different secondary schools – private, denominational and government. The 20K race option caters to the seasoned runners/walkers. Looking for the 5K/10K student version? Click here.
This idea was initiated by staff members who found it increasingly difficult to keep students motivated with the online learning. Students are less engaged, less interested and their mental health is at risk. In an effort to promote a balanced lifestyle for our students, we hope the event will help motivate everyone to get outside and get active. The collaboration amongst many schools is to encourage participation amongst families, neighbors and friends no matter what school they attend.
From April 1st, sponsored training schedules from the top road running groups of Trinidad & Tobago will be available along with Google maps of flat and safe training locations. Through the support of our sponsors we will have several giveaways strictly for secondary school students so make sure to select your school on the registration form.
Once you have completed the event you will receive your StudentsUnited 2021 participation medal along with some surprises that we will reveal throughout the next few months. Participation packages will be available for pick up after June 20th 2021. Welcome to StudentsUnited 2021 Virtual Race! Happy running!

This school led initiative, which grew out of the challenges faced by students coming out of a period of confinement, is also reflected in our medal design; violet and green shapes representing gears within a head, centered within a gear. Gears enable mobility in unity, and mobility further unites mind with body. Violet is a colour of self awareness and green unites the heart with nature. Our medal is a symbol of connection and balance between physical and mental wellness through fitness.
