2018 Results

Come out for the 11th Annual Gaucho Gallop at the 2018 All Gaucho Reunion. 

THIS YEAR THE RACE WILL START IN A BRAND-NEW LOCATION AND WILL BE A PART OF THE NEW GAUCHO FESTIVAL. START AND FINISH LINE NEXT TO THE UCSB LIBRARY.

Proceeds from the race will go towards the UC Santa Barbara Alumni Scholarship Fund. The race's route features iconic landmarks on the UC Santa Barbara campus, from the Thunderdome, the University Center, Storke Tower, and the UCSB Library.

FOR ALL AGES, ALL ABILITIES

This race is for all ages and fitness levels. The SBAA Grand Prix's flat and fast course accommodates both competitive and first-time 5k participants.  

FOR OUR FUTURE GAUCHOS

Our younger runners can work off all their pent-up energy at the Kid's 1 Mile - a great way to introduce future Gauchos to our beautiful campus.

FINISHERS RECEPTION: EVERYONE WINS

All participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt and are invited to our Finishers Reception Area for free food (Country Catering will be providing breakfast burritos!), coffee (Caribbean Coffee Craft Draft), and prizes.  

PACKET PICK-UP

Participants will be able to pick up their bibs, t-shirts, and goodie bags on Friday, April 27th 2018 at the Mosher Alumni House on campus from 12pm - 6pm.  We will also have a small window for packet pick-ups on race day at if you are unable to make it.  Registration will be available ($5 additional per person).
