5K Fun Run
This 3.1 mile course goes along portions of the Oso Creek Trail in Mission Viejo. The trail provides scenic views, public art and an unpaved ½ mile section on dirt through trees. The trail has been developed with numerous amenities and features that serve to educate and honor the community. These features include the Peace Obelisk to honor victims of 9/11, the mosaic history walls in the Character Garden, the vibrantly painted butterflies, the Celebration Garden, the Wave Wall on the Upper Oso Creek Trail, and the community murals surrounding the Village Green.
5K Modified Run
This 3.1 mile course is an option for those participating in wheelchairs or pushing strollers as it does not include the unpaved ½ mile section in the course above. This route will travel further south on the trail beyond La Paz road and provides additional views of the Oso Creek Trail.
