The first ever running universal event in Universal Studios Hollywood was held last Saturday, May 11. We were invited to witness the run with the Minions on hand to cheer on the runners!
It was little after five in the morning when we got to see the runners waiting at the starting line. There was a lot of excitement in the air and you could tell how eager the runners were. The minions were there and kept the energy high.
At exactly 6, they were off. Some of the runners were dressed as minions and some were dressed as bananas keeping with the “Minion/Despicable Me” theme.
The race was a hit and all that were involved has an excellent time. This is the first of many events like this for Universal and we are hearing the next may even have a “Jurassic” vibe to it!
As the race completed we moved to the finish line to wait for the participants to cross the finish line. All of them looked like they had an amazing time and were rewarded with very cute medals to take home for their hard work. Snacks were also provided to them after the run to help re-build their energy.
