UC San Diego is inviting the community to join Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla and university faculty, staff, students and alumni on the annual 5K scenic run through campus on June 7.
While supporting student scholarships, participants will pass the King Triton statue, the iconic Geisel Library and several renowned public artworks from the Stuart Collection, including Tim Hawkinson’s 23-foot-high stone “Bear” and Do Ho Suh’s “Fallen Star” house perched precariously atop Jacobs Hall.
Established in 1996, the annual 5K is a long-standing campus tradition that has raised more than $3.5 million to benefit motivated and ambitious UC San Diego students.
Triton 5K Early Bird pricing is $35 for general community members. Pricing will increase by $5 when Early Bird pricing ends on April 30. Registration and more information are available online.
The 5K event also features a healthy living festival that includes hands-on activities for all ages, live music by Todo Mundo, a beer garden and a Kids Fun Run. The festival is free and open to the public.
