Universal Studios Hollywood adds second date for 5K run

Want to run with the Minions around Universal Studios Hollywood? The park has added a second date to its inaugural Running Universal 5K Minion Run and is now taking registrations for Sunday, May 12.

The original date on Saturday, May 11 has sold out, so Universal extended the event, which is open to runners ages five and up.

“Starting at Universal Studios Hollywood’s iconic front gates, participants will pass through some of the theme park’s immersive areas and attractions before winding their way along the historic backlot and into the magical world of movie-making as they head toward the finish line at CityWalk’s 5 Towers outdoor concert stage,” Universal said in its press release.

Characters, including the Minions, will cheer runners on the course, which will include the studio’s iconic backlot.

The run starts at 6am and concludes with the presentation of Minion medals at 7:30. Registration is available on the Running Universal website and starts at $75 for runners, with a $135 VIP package, and a $169 registration that includes a park ticket for the day.
