(AP) An annual run to honor the 32 Virginia Tech students and faculty who were killed in a 2007 school shooting will be held on April 13.
  
Virginia Tech’s 3.2-mile Run in Remembrance is now in its 11th year. Last year, more than 14,000 people participated in the event.
  
The run will begin at 9 a.m. with a moment of silence lasting 32 seconds for each of the victims.
  
The route for the run will take participants throughout Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg. Participants may run, walk or push a stroller on the course.
  
On April 16, 2007, an undergraduate student at Virginia Tech shot 49 people on campus, killing 32 and wounding 17. The gunman, a senior at the school, killed himself after his rampage.
