color run

Have you ever considered adding a little color to your Fun Run? Color Runs are a simple way to take your jog-athon/ run-athon / walk-athon to the next level! All you need are some white t-shirts, volunteers to toss the colored powder and the willingness to be silly with your next fundraiser. Color Runs are popular enough now that most people recognize it and are more than excited to be a part of one. So, gather your team, invest in a little stain remover (powder is easy to lift from skin and clothes), and get to planning your next Color Run!

Why We Love Color Runs

We know we’re not alone in loving Color Runs. This colorful trend has swept the nation and revamped races. It has gotten people off the couch, invited kids into the racing world, and added a whole lot of fun into the experience of running! Jumping on this trend also has some great benefits for schools looking to add some new energy into their Fun Run.

Color Runs also provide some awesome benefits for PTO/PTA groups:

Recognition: Color Runs are an easily recognizable event and just the mention of hosting a Color Run will immediately elevate your athon fundraiser and have the potential to grow participation and donations!

Participation: Students are far more likely to sign up to participate in your Fun Run if they know they will be showered with color! It takes away part of the burden of running and focuses more on the fun – the point is not to do laps but to race to the next color station to get drenched in color!

Energy: When you have a Color Run, the energy level of your event takes care of itself.

The music, the color, the running, the dancing and jumping and fun make your event a memorable experience that everyone will want to be a part of – whether that be students running, parents volunteering, or community members donating to your cause!
