Event Description

The 23rd annual Triton 5K & Festival is Sunday, April 7, 2019! Start training now for the 3.1 mile, USATF-sanctioned scenic trek through the heart of the UC San Diego campus. 

Race proceeds support student scholarships and the Campaign for UC San Diego—our comprehensive fundraising effort to transform the student experience, our campus, and ultimately the way humanity approaches problems and develops solutions. 

For nearly 60 years, we’ve been dedicated to ensuring that learning is accessible and affordable for all. Together, we are inspiring and creating the next generation of artists, entrepreneurs, researchers, policy makers, scholars, engineers and healers. Run, walk or stroll in support of tomorrow’s changemakers; you’ll impact lives here—and across the globe.


Not in San Diego on April 7? No problem! Our regional alumni clubs around the world are hosting 5K runs in their respective cities. Take a look at the clubs hosting events and join the thousands of Tritons on campus running in support of student scholarships and the Campaign for UC San Diego. As an added bonus, you’ll get to meet some other local Tritons and our amazing club leaders. More details to come!
