Universal Studios Hollywood has announced its all-new “Running Universal,” a series of fun runs that kicks off on Saturday May 11, 2019, with an energetic Minion-themed 5K.

Guests ages five and older are invited to participate in the run that will take them through parts of Universal Studios’ historic backlot that has been featured in over 8,000 movies and television shows.

The run starts at Universal Studios Hollywood’s iconic front gates and holds its finish line at CityWalk’s 5 Towers outdoor concert stage. Along the 3.1 mile course, participants will be entertained and cheered on by some of their favorite Universal Studios Hollywood characters, including the Minions themselves!

The program will begin at 6 a.m. and culminate at 7:30 a.m. with a memorable awards and closing ceremony. Registration is now open and space is limited. Click here to register!
