Virtual Triton 5K - 25th Anniversary

Join us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of this popular UC San Diego event! Participate virtually, from anywhere on the globe—and run, walk or roll from wherever you are in support of student scholarships!

 Since its founding in 1996 by former UC San Diego Chancellor Robert C. Dynes, the Triton 5K (formerly the Chancellor's Challenge 5K Run/Walk for Scholars) has raised more than $4 million in undergraduate scholarship support, benefiting more than 1,000 motivated and ambitious students. Now in its second decade, the Triton 5K continues to expand scholarships, ensuring that learning is accessible and affordable for all!

Sign up for the Triton 5K by selecting the “General Pass + Tailgate and Triton 5K” pass type in registration.

Access the Virtual Triton 5K app to track your race time and get the latest race info. Just download Sporthive Live on your mobile device and search “UC San Diego.”

Prizes will be awarded for the Fastest Individual (1st, 2nd, 3rd place), Highest Fundraising Team and Best Social Media Post (#ucsdhomecoming).

Please note: registrations submitted after 2pm PDT on Friday, October 22 will not have race tracking access in the Sporthive Live app.

A portion of your race entry will unlock the promise of possibility and benefit deserving students. Want to make a more profound impact? Wherever you are in the world, it’s now easier than ever to make a difference in the lives of our students. Give to Triton 5K scholarships today!
