Om Run 2018 Starts in
Om Run was conceived many years ago as one of the ways Chinmaya Mission advocates its Mission statememt which is “to give maximum happiness to maximum people for maximum time” Chinmaya Mission was founded by Swami Chinmayananda in the 1950’s, the mission has 380 locations across the globe. Chinmaya Mission is a non-profit organization that provides value education for kids, spiritual classes for adults and it undertakes several community-building projects.
Om Run was launched in 2009 to bring the Chinmaya Family in the greater SF Bay Area together for a fun filled day of outdoor activities for both kids and adults. This is a Run that is way more than a Run. It’s a day filled with fun activities for all age groups.
Om Run has been held annually since 2010, hosting more than 2000 runners and several hundreds of spectator attendees annually in April. It is the largest community building event organized by CMSJ, which is fun for the whole family. Om Run attracts athletes from across the Bay Area, including participants who are industry leaders from Silicon Valley. The race delivers athletes a singular experience. Runners find The OM Run to be unparalleled in its union of challenge and beauty.
Beautiful Vasona Park was the host for Om Run in 2017. It was held at the Quarry Lakes RRA in 2011, 2013 and 2016 and at Hellyer County Park in 2014 and 2015.
2018 sees us again at Vasona Park.
