Registration Open for 2017 We Run the City

LONG BEACH, Calif. (May 4, 2017) – The annual We Run the City, a 5K/10K run/walk benefiting Special Olympics Southern California returns to the campus of UCLA and will be held on Sunday, Nov. 19. Registration for this unique rivalry run is now open and runners can take advantage of early registration pricing at

We Run the City is a run/walk that supports Special Olympics Southern California athletes. The event, which will be held on the UCLA campus in 2017, features a 10K Run, 5K Run, 5K Walk, a 1/4-mile Kids Run (10 years-old and younger) and a virtual race for those who can’t be there.

Fans, families, alumni, staff, and students from USC and UCLA, or anyone who just likes to run, compete to add to the UCLA-USC bragging rights. The winner earns more bragging rights and the We Run the City trophy. The fundraiser celebrates the annual UCLA vs. USC football game and takes place at the end of the celebrated Rivalry Week.

Each runner/walker must declare their allegiance to Team USC or Team UCLA at the time of registration. Competition is broken into three categories: most donations, most registered runners/walkers, and fastest runners. The team that wins two out of three (or sweeps all three) claims victory.

The Early Registration pricing for the 5K run/walk is just $35. Early registration ends on Aug. 31. Benefits for runners include the official We Run the City t-shirt, a finisher medal presented by an SOSC athlete, a Fan Fest held before and after the race, and a VIP zone.
