Head out to the Gaucho Gallop during the 14th Annual All Gaucho Reunion!


Proceeds from the race will go towards the UC Santa Barbara Alumni Scholarship Fund, empowering current and future students to invent the future. The race's route features iconic landmarks on the UC Santa Barbara campus, from the Thunderdome, Storke Tower, Campus Lagoon and UCSB Library.

Register online and secure the best race prices! Late registrations must register during Packet Pickup on Friday April 24th at Mosher Alumni House and will incur an additional $5 per person.



Regardless of age or fitness level, this race is open to all. The flat and fast course around our beautiful campus accommodates competitive and first-time 5K participants. 

Younger runners can sign up for the Kid's Mile presented by The Santa Barbara Independent - introduce future Gauchos to our beautiful campus. 

This is a Junior Grand Prix race. Ages 11-17, if participating, be sure to select the Junior Grand Prix ticket at checkout.



All participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt and are welcome to grab coffee, food, and other prizes at our Finisher's Reception. 



Participants may pick up their bibs, t-shirts, and goodie bags on Friday, April 24th, on the first floor of Mosher Alumni House between 12:00 pm and 6:00 pm. If you are unable to make it, there will be a small window prior to the beginning of the race in which you can grab your race items. If you plan to pick up your bib and shirt day-of, please be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the race in order to park and grab your bib. Race will begin promptly at 9:00 am. 



All are invited to attend the Kid's Festival! Beginning at 10:00 am, come play games and win prizes, located right next to the Gaucho Gallop course.
