Race or walk in aid of a fantastic cause, the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Returning for its 26th year, this event promises a vibrant atmosphere and fun-filled day, with an awards ceremony, costume contest and access to its fitness expo.
The course takes participants winding around the beautiful UCLA campus in the heart of Los Angeles, beginning in Wilson Plaza. Runners and walkers will then head down Charles E Young Drive and navigate a variety of twists and turns before heading to an exciting section at the Portola Plaza. Once they arrive, participants will be greeted by a DJ who will be playing tunes to drive all participants through the course.
Participants will then head down Charles E Young Drive and then stream up towards Bruin Walk. They will finally snake around Charles E Young Drive, past the Drake Stadium, the iconic home of the UCLA Bruins, before finishing back at the beautiful Wilson Plaza.
