The two-day event starts on Saturday, Nov. 16 with a 5K and the new Kids’ 1K Raptor Run. On Sunday, Nov. 17, the park will host its first-ever 10K run. For the ultimate experience, participants can register with the Play All Day package, which lets Jurassic World fans “run it, then ride it.”

The 5K and 10K are both geared toward guests ages 5 and older, and the Kids’ 1K Raptor Run is targeted for those between the ages of 4 and 12. All participants will receive a collectible Finisher medal, and those who complete both the 5K and 10K will receive an exclusive Challenger medal. The Jurassic World Run will conclude at the Universal CityWalk finish line and feature a celebration at the 5 Towers Stage.

As part of the run, participants will travel through areas of the new attraction, including the Jurassic World arches. Runners will also be able to take part in fun photo-ops set up along the way, including ones with film props and another with Blue the Raptor.

The Jurassic World 5K Run starts at 6 a.m. on Nov. 16, followed by the Kids’ 1K Raptor Run at 7:30 a.m. The 10K will kick off at 5:30 a.m. on Nov. 17. Registration is open now, but space is limited.
