About This Activity


The Triple Creek Color Dash 5K and 1 mile fun run/walk is back! We have joined forces with the Three Rivers Water Festival again and will be hosting our colorful fun 5K run and 1 mile Fun run/walk on Saturday June 17th at 9:00am during the weekend of the festival. The race will start and end at Memory Isle Park, Three Rivers, Michigan. This is not a timed race; we encourage runners and walkers to take their sweet time going through the color stations and have fun!

BEFORE THE RACE: Prior to the race runners are invited to a pancake breakfast at the Three Rivers Fire Department starting at 7:00am (additional cost). We will also be hosting our Pre- Race Zumba party to get you warmed up for the big event starting at 8:20am!

DURING THE RACE: Along the route runners will be dusted with color! The 1 mile Fun Run group will be colored at three intersections while the 5K runners will be colored at six different intersections. Both groups should be prepared to get covered in color!!

POST RACE:  All runners are invited to stay after the race for a massive color throw!! As runners and walkers cross the finish line they will be given their own individual color packets to be thrown during our post race color throw!

EXTRAS: Not only will you be signing for a fun overloaded event, you will also receive a free t-shirt, color packet, and local vendors coupons in your race packet.

RUNNING FOR A CAUSE: Proceeds from this year's Triple Creek Color Dash will be going towards Three Rivers Relay for Life . This year will be the 32nd year celebrating Relay for Life. Dr. Gordy Klatt, walked/ran around a track for 24 hours back in 1985. He raised more than $25,000 to help finish the fight against cancer-the nation's biggest health concern. Since then, Relay for Life has grown into a worldwide phenomenon raising nearly $5 billion. The 2016 Three Rivers Relay for Life event netted a record high $140,396.00 for the ACS- the 13th highest revenue event in Michigan. With your help we can create a world where our loved ones are no longer threatened or robbed of another birthday.

CHILDREN: Children five years and under are free. They must be with a registered adult. A t-shirt and/or color packet can be purchased for them under the STORE tab at the top of the page. Strollers are allowed, just remember we will be throwing color so bring towels to clean off!

COLOR CLEAN UP: Expect to be COLORED after the event and prepare properly! Bring towels for the inside of your car to cover those car seats before you sit down!

CLOTHES: The color mostly washes out after the event. However, as with anything that gets dirty, the sooner you wash your gear the better. Dust off all excess powder before washing with water. Wash your color run gear separately and use cold water. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn't mind getting colorful!

HAIR: Prior to the race oiling your hair well will make it easier to wash out post race. We suggest using coconut or olive oil. A good leave-in conditioner will do the trick also! After the race dust any loose powder out of your hair. Rinse out oil/conditioner (if you applied) before with cold water and then wash your hair as you normally would!

There will be no guarantee for availability of T-Shirts or sizes upon "Late Registration". Register by June 1st to guarantee your T-Shirt and size!! If you would like to purchase an additional T-Shirt, you can do so under the STORE tab.
