Orange County has one of the most accessible and extensive walking/biking trail systems in the nation. On Saturday, June 15, the recreation offering becomes even more impressive. That morning, the community will help celebrate the opening of the region’s latest nature trail in the heart of Irvine.

Greater Irvine Chamber member businesses and individuals are invited to take part in the opening of the 1.5-mile Bosque trail at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine—and make history in the process.
An attempt will be made to break a world record for the longest high-five chain. The current Guinness Book of World Records high-five chain is 3,473.

FivePoint and the City of Irvine are co-presenting the Great High Five and Bosque Celebration with lineups starting at 7 a.m. and the high-five chain beginning promptly at 8 a.m. A diverse mix of people from ages nine to 90—particularly from community-minded schools, businesses, and nonprofits, as well as residents—will line the new Bosque trail, uniting to enjoy nature in a beautiful setting and morning refreshments, greet fellow participants, experience on-site activities, and share Instagram-able moments, and to break a Guinness Book of World Records! 

Companies can invite their employees to participate as a group by listing their company in the ‘Organization Name’ field.

The first 3,500 people to sign up or anyone signing up by Friday May 31 (whichever comes first) will receive a complimentary gift package at the event, including a commemorative T-shirt, wearable drawstring bag, and other prizes. 

Detailed information will be emailed to participants during the week of June 3, including directions, parking info, trail map, where to check-in and claim gift bags, designated meeting areas for teams with large groups, and how the domino-like high-five chain will work and be documented for review by the Guinness Book of World Records.
