Why is Om Run going virtual?

For 9 years Om Run has been promoting a healthy lifestyle in keeping with Chinmaya Mission’s motto of delivering maximum happiness to maximum people.  Due to the stresses induced by the pandemic the need to stay healthy is greater today than at any other time in the past and since we cannot meet physically, hence the need to go virtual. 


What will a virtual Om Run look like?

Unlike past Om Run events, this year everyone will need to train on their own. Om Run coaches have provided self-help instructions, schedules and best practice information on the My Run page.  Additionally, registrants will be able log their miles/minutes/steps to receive specially designed Om Run virtual badges upon completing a personal challenge. 


Two ways to track your fitness goal

Log your miles/steps on this website or on the smart phone App (coming soon).  Just upload your miles/steps and we will track your progress.

COVID Relief fund
The COVID pandemic has caused severe financial hardships on the community and in keeping with the Om Run tradition ALL registration fees and donations will go towards Chinmaya Mission San Jose’s general COVID Relief Fund.
Have questions or need more information, please connect with Team Om Run at Omrun@cmsj.org
This too shall pass and the physical Om Run will be back soon, until then, let’s live the memories of the past here (add link to pictures, videos from past Om Run events) AND create new memories here (add a link to add pictures, videos, comments etc).

Thank you for organizing an excellent running this year. The registration process, the reminders, the bib pickup and the run day were very well planned and executed.  I would rate the event a perfect 10, will definitely attend next year.  I have attended nearly every run since the inception.


Thank you for every thing. Whole event was thoroughly planned and executed meticulously. Volunteers were extremely patient, courteous and welcoming.  The stations on the way were so well organized. Thanks a ton to all those patient volunteers who cheered and stationed water through out.

Food was great. Entertainment was also great. Bombay jam was very good. Quotations on the mile markers are awesome!!
