All-out Ostrich Uproar 5K Race

Our traditional 5 km fun race will take place on Wednesday, February 10th. The race will begin at 4:30 p.m., just before sunset, and will explore the beautiful San Diego River. The course will begin on the north side of the Town & Country hotel, and runners will head east before setting foot on the river trail. Runners will enjoy a view of the sunset over the river as they head south to cross the bridge before turning west back onto the river trail. The race ends at the Town & Country hotel, leaving just enough time to clean up and enjoy evening activities. Runners are encouraged to stay for a short awards ceremony to applaud finalists.

The $20 race participation fee includes a special gift and eligibility for ostrich-egg prizes. Most importantly, at least half of the proceeds go toward student funds! Runners who would like to participate can sign up and pay in advance at the time they register for the conference, or by revisiting and revising their conference registration account online. Runners can also sign up at the conference registration desk when they arrive in San Diego. The course map and additional details will be available at registration.
