Course Details:
The Matador Fun Run will provide a great tour of the beautiful CSUN Campus.  All participants are required to run, walk and roll on the sidewalks and cart paths as you wind through the campus.  This is a Fun Run, and therefore not a timed event.  We will have a clock at the start and finish line for reference. Course is stroller, wheelchair, and dog-friendly!
