I Run 4 Cal: 5K Run/Walk is a charity race at UC Berkeley for campus departments, scholarships, programs, and student groups. Participants will run (or walk!) the on-campus course to show their support of Cal. The party continues after with the I Run 4 Cal: 5K Run/Walk Expo providing fun booths, activities, and live entertainment for all runners and spectators.

Raise Money, Race, and Win Prizes

Runners/walkers are encouraged to seek sponsorships from friends and family in support of their run. Sponsorships will be donated to the UC Berkeley campus program (department, unit, scholarship, student group, program, etc.) of the runner’s choice.

Those who raise $50 or more will receive raffle tickets to win great prizes including gift cards and athletic gear. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 males and females who finish the 5K with the fastest times. The student group or campus department that brings the most participants to the event will receive a $250 donation.

How to Participate

Participants register online for $23 [$8 registration fee + $15 minimum donation to Cal]. The original $15 (plus any other funds that you or your friends/family donate on your behalf) will be donated to the UC Berkeley department, major, program, scholarship, student group, etc., of your choice. All participants will receive a technical running shirt and other gifts from our sponsors!

To prevent overcrowding, participants must choose between two separate waves (10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.)—each wave will be capped strictly at 500 participants. MORNING WAVE SOLD OUT AS OF 04/02/2013.
