About This Activity

Join us for the first annual Do The Bloom!  You will run through color stations every half mile or so and end the 5K looking like a walking piece of art!  The Anacortes Arts Festival is excited to offer the first-ever color run in Anacortes and happy to be raising money for public art in our community.

There will also be a 1 Mile Kid Dash so the under 12 crowd can enjoy a color dusting of their own.

Event details and schedule

If you are pre-registered, you can pick up your t-shirt and bib number at the Anacortes Arts Festival office (505 O Avenue) on Thursday, April 16 from 10:00a.m. - 5:00p.m.

On-site Registration and t-shirt pick-up opens at 7:30a.m. on run day (April 18).  Registration is at the Depot Arts Center (611 R Avenue).  There is street parking and parking at Cap Sante Marina available.

The 5K and the Kids 1 Mile Color Run both begin at 9:00a.m.  Top finishers will be announced at 10:00a.m. and the celebration at the Depot will continue until 11:00a.m.

Dogs and strollers are welcome, just know that they will likely get dusted with color!

If you haven't done a color run before, it is best to not wear your favorite running gear!  Wear light colors (preferably white shirts) and your not-newest running shoes so that you can enjoy the fun of the color dusting without worry.  Most times the color washes out if you want it to, but it is best to be prepared for it not to!
