What is the Fun Run 2014 in Color?
A fun run is an untimed run open to all abilities, from the avid runner to families. Participants can run or walk the route. There will be three to four color stations with different colors throughout the course

The color is food-grade quality cornstarch that is bio-degradable, non-toxic and 100% safe. Volunteers will be located at color stations with bulk buckets of color. Each color station will feature a new color. As runners pass, the volunteers will continue to toss the color at them.

Registration and Entry Fee
Registration will be available on until 1:59 AM (CST) on April 2, 2014. Race is subject to capacity limit, and may close at any time prior to this date. Pre-registration required. While children five and under are free, they must still register online and will not receive a t-shirt or bib. The price for teams, groups of at least four individuals six years or older, is $20 each, and for individuals six and older is $25. Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable.
