Universal Studios Hollywood has announced “Running Universal,” a series of fun runs that kicks off with a Minion–themed 5K on Saturday, May 11, 2019.

The inaugural Minion Run, featuring Illumination’s mischievous Minions, invites participants ages five and older (of all experience levels) to wind their way around Universal Studios Hollywood and through parts of Universal Studios’ historic backlot.

Starting at Universal Studios front gates, participants will pass through some of the theme park’s attractions and areas. Along the 3.1-mile course, participants will be entertained by some of their favorite Universal Studios Hollywood characters including the Minions as they head toward the finish line at CityWalk’s 5 Towers outdoor concert stage.

The program will begin at 6 a.m. and culminate at 7:30 a.m. with a memorable awards and closing ceremony.  Registration is now open and space is limited. For more information about the standard, VIP and Fan packages, visit https://www.runninguniversal.com.
