UC San Diego Triton 5K

The Triton 5K (formerly the Chancellor’s Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars) has been reimagined. The annual race will feature a new course, Kids Fun Run, event festival, healthy living fair and more!

Since it was established in 1996, the Triton 5K (formerly the Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars) has raised more than $3 million, benefiting more than 900 motivated and ambitious students with scholarship support. 

Join Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla and 2,500 fellow students, alumni, staff, faculty and friends for a 3.1 mile adventure through campus—past King Triton, the world famous Geisel Library, the Sun God, a 23-foot-high stone bear, and a house mysteriously perched on the Jacobs School of Engineering!

Registration closes May 31st.
