An educational breeding ground for tomorrow's scientists and engineers, UCSD is also an athletic playground for local residents and out-of-town visitors. Professional triathletes and Olympic track and fielders train on the 1/4 -mile oval. Elite swimmers work out in the 50-meter outdoor pool and take advantage of the 3 daily Masters swims. And students and adult members get fit at RIMAC Arena, the campus' health and wellness center.
These state-of-the-art facilities are supported by private and state funding and are available to the traveling public. Circular running is free, and admission to RIMAC and the pools is $10/day. Parking on campus can be a challenge, but temporary permits can be purchased at the Visitor Information Center on the campus' NW side (some meter spots are located near each of the athletic venues). Running on the meandering roads and tree-lined trails (east of Hopkins Drive) is a hilly treat. Maps are available at the Visitor Information Center. Estancia guests are closest to all the fun, although anyone in the La Jolla area can enjoy the facilities, we do all the time.
Check the website for specific directions to each facility.
