SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diegans can get out and run or hit the treadmill for some great causes this weekend.

Virtually take part in the March for Meals 5K or Relay for Life races to help raise money and spread awareness for great causes in San Diego.

The Natural History Museum isn't open for visitors, but its Friday night trivia event is still running online.

The Del Mar Fairgrounds is also still hosting a delicious drive-thru for visitors looking for a taste of the fair.

(As a reminder, residents are encouraged to stay home if they feel ill and avoid large gatherings with people not from the same household. The county also requires residents to practice social distancing and wear a facial covering when within six feet of those not from the same household.)

Trivia with Nat at Night (Friday): Trivia night at the Natural History Museum has gone virtual, with the rooftop becoming your couch! The Nat will hold Friday night trivia online every Friday at 7 p.m. on Facebook. The digital rendition of the museum's 21+ rooftop trivia nights will still be led by museum trivia hosts. More info

Drive-in movie theater (Friday - Sunday): Head to Santee Drive-In Theater or South Bay Drive-In for a movie night. This weekend, check out films like The Goonies, The Rental, Bridesmaids, Gremlins, and more with the family or a date while experiencing that classic drive-in movie feeling.

March for Meals 5K (Friday - Sunday): Help raise funds for Meals on Wheels with a virtual walk or run. For every mile you walk or run, you'll also receive an entry into drawings. More info

Relay for Life of San Diego (Saturday - Sunday): While COVID-19 has changed up this year's Relay for Life, the race to help end cancer hasn't slowed. Jump into the virtual race this weekend and help raise funds. The virtual event will also feature online demonstrations. More info
