Om Run 2017

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 waay more than a Run. It’s a day filled with fun activities for all age groups.  The event will feature a 5K Run/Walk, 10K Run/Walk, a Half Marathon and a fun Om Mela ! Om Mela has been a crowd favorite for all the previous events.

2017 sees us at a new venue – the beautiful Vasona Park.
