**Update: Due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic, this event has been cancelled.**
Calling all DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls fans & runners alike! In a little over 2 months, Universal Studios Hollywood will be hosting its annual Running Universal 5K & 10K race event!
On Sunday, April 26th, fans will join Poppy, Branch & Guy Diamond for a race through the theme park & parts of the Universal Studios backlot. Also, kids can join in on the Kids’ 1K!
Run for fun & stop for photo ops with your favorite DreamWorks characters.
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to jogging the “Jaws” lagoon that I always see during the Tram Ride at Universal!
I’m also hoping to get a selfie in front of the “War of the Worlds” set pieces too!
The running course map hasn’t been officially released yet, but in reading past recaps of last year’s Minions & Jurassic World race events – I expect a few mini hills & possibly one steep hill during the run. So be prepared people! 😉
It’s all in good fun though, as fans run, jog, or walk their way – tapping their toes to “Can’t Stop the Feeling” as they head to the finish line to receive a Trolls-themed race medal!
