    It’s a fun race for a great cause and with a lot of school spirit (GO BRUINS!). I have only run on the “USC turf” and it was fun, though there’s a section where you’re just kind of running through the parking lot. There’s a ton of water stops, though, DJs along the course, and in general the production was fantastic. You get extra swag the more donations you get and it’s a great motivator to raise money for such a great cause. My favorite part was having Special Olympic athletes give me my medals – I felt very honored.
    It was surprisingly hot, but you can never predict California weather.

    This is a terrific race. Whether you’re running as part of the UCLA vs USC rivalry or running for Special Olympics Southern California, or you’re just running because it’s local, this is a great race. The energy is terrific, there are inspirational speakers and there are participants of all ages. USC is a flatter course and UCLA is hillier. Both are fun, fast courses.
