Runners are you ready? Get a jump start on the day and join us for our inaugural Run Viva CalleSJ 5K race, presented to you by AARP California! Viva CalleSJ is about celebrating our city, its neighborhoods, businesses, and people – and today we also celebrate our founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus.

Dr. Andrus was visionary with her early work and commitment to making communities more livable for people of all ages and abilities. This is why we advocate for innovative opportunities that embrace open spaces and are inviting to all generations.
