FUN, lots of color, some crazy costumes, informal, not timed, a great cause, oh and FUN!
The Fourth Annual "Really Close to Almost 5K Color Run/Walk" is proudly co-sponsored by Rotary District 6510. Competitions for best costumes (we can't wait to see what people come up with!), biggest team, furthest traveled and more. Raffles, prizes AND photo ops with some of the service dogs.
In addition to the new fun stuff, we are setting some outrageously optimistic goals that you can help us meet! As the saying goes, "the more the merrier" and that is SO true with a color run! We hope to have 1500 people this year (that's adding about 500 from last year's race) and to raise $25,000. That $25,000 will fully-fund a PTSD service dog's training AND bring their veteran to our campus for three weeks, provide housing, training equipment and most all of their meals at NO cost to the veteran. If we meet this goal, the race will have sponsored a veteran/service dog team and you will get to help pick out the dog name!
Put a team together and help us in getting the word out! As a walk/run, people of all ages can come out and have fun - and we couldn't be any less formal than we are at the "Really Close to Almost 5K Color Walk/Run" - the name kinda says it all!
Please note: We recommend all runners wear goggles while running through color stations. Children age 5 and under can run/walk FREE but must have one adult per child. Parent/legal guardian must sign waiver on the day of the race or at the pre-registration locations. We encourage you to have the child wear swimming goggles to protect their eyes from the powder. T-shirts are not included for children participating for free, but will be included if they are a paid race participant. ONLY service dogs are permitted. Personal pet dogs are not. Thank you for your consideration.
