The Route

The 2020 Mission Hills 5k Route


The Mission Hills 5k winds through scenic Mission Hills, one of the most historic, treasured neighborhoods in San Diego. The fun run/walk begins and ends at Grant K-8 public school, 1425 Washington Place. Participants will pass Craftsman and Spanish historical homes, charming boutiques, gourmet eats and coffee shops galore before crossing the finish line in victory back where it all began at Grant K-8. This route has been specifically designed in partnership with the City of San Diego and local law enforcement to have minimum impact on local residents and businesses. Trained personnel will be stationed throughout the route to safely direct traffic.

Medals for Kids & Prizes for Top Finishers


Finishing a 5k is an accomplishment! Medals will be awarded to all children age 14 and younger. This is a timed race with prizes awarded to top finishers in specific age categories as well.

Sorry, Fur Friends!


We love dogs, we love cats, we love guinea pigs, we love turtles. But our insurance company? Sadly not so much. For everyone's safety, no pets are allowed along the route or at the after-party. Thank you for understanding.
