The Campus Advocacy Resources and Education program (CARE) at UCSB is sponsoring its third annual 5K Walk/Run in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The race will take place on Sunday April 14th, and will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the UCSB Student Resource Building. All proceeds from the race will benefit the CARE Advocacy Fund. The race is open to UCSB students, faculty and staff members, as well as the greater Santa Barbara community.
The race will take place on campus and will highlight buildings and offices around campus that are important resources for student survivors of sexual assault. The race will begin on the Faculty Green near the lagoon, and end on the back lawn of the Student Resource Building, adjacent to Parking Lot #23. Racers can park in Lot #22 or #23 for the duration of the race. Parking permits are available for purchase in automated machines and are $4. Please note that there are stairs on this course by Campus Point. Participants with strollers may want to leave them in a parked car in lot #6 for use after the stairs.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the race, and the race will begin at 9:30 a.m. Post-race refreshments will be available on the Student Resource Building lawn until 12:00 p.m. This years race also offers an opportunity for runners to register as a team. Registration is $15 for individuals or $10 per person for teams of four to six.
