Top Draft Picks: Berkelium 5K Edition

Our first Berkelium 5K Walk/Run was a huge success, with more than 700 Golden Bears, their friends, and families participating internationally. We are so impressed with everyone who laced up their running shoes, threw on their favorite Cal gear, and got moving for this virtual event.

During the 5K, the Cal Alumni Association asked alumni to show us their “Most Cal-Spirited Run” and “Most Scenic Run” for the chance to win prizes from the Claremont Hotel and Spa and Weatherford BMW. We were so amazed by the number of entries we received and the wonderful photos taken by 5K participants that we decided to put together our own Berkelium 5K superlatives!

We hope you enjoy the following list—and we can’t wait to see the photos still to come. Tag us in your race photos using #Berkelium5K on Instagram. Thank you once again to all who participated.
