Participants are welcome at 9:30 am at Japanese Peace Plaza. The first 600 participants will get a free Our Heritage 5K t-shirt and race bib.

We will kick off the run with performances at 10:00 am sharp. Then we will blow the airhorn to kick off the 5K from Japantown towards Little Saigon, Opera Plaza, Tenderloin, Market Street, Chinatown, and ending at Portsmouth Square for a finishers’ celebration to kick off AAPI Heritage Month!

The route will be managed by volunteers and is marked with orange ribbons that will guide you to each landmark. Each landmark will have volunteers, photo ops, facts about their rich significance, and even some surprise activities.

Most of the route is flat or downhill except for Chinatown towards the end where there will be a hill to conquer. But! You will be greatly rewarded with surprise giveaways in the alleys that will lead participants toward the finishing line at Portsmouth Square.

Cheering spectators will be ready to celebrate your finish! The first to arrive at Portsmouth Square will have the special honor of breaking the “Asians Are Strong” finishing line tape!
