What is the Fun Run 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 four different color stations throughout the course. The race starts at approximately at 8:30A.

Who does this race benefit?
The Rotary Club of Wheaton AM, in conjunction with the Wheaton Park District, is sponsoring the Fun Run in Color 2020 to benefit local Rotary-supported charities and the Play for All Playground & Garden Foundation. Money will go toward creating play for all at the Sensory Garden Playground in Lisle, IL.

What should I wear?
White clothing is encouraged in order for the color to be seen, but participants can wear different colors or costumes as well. Participants should wear clothes and shoes they don’t mind getting dirty. Cold water and washing the clothes and shoes right away will help get the items clean. While the color is 100% safe and food grade quality cornstarch, runners may choose to take extra precaution and wear eye and mouth protection.

What should I bring to keep my items clean?
Participants are encouraged to bring towels and blankets to cover the seats of their cars. If bringing a camera or phone, participants are encouraged to keep it in plastic wrap or a plastic bag.

Are strollers allowed?
Strollers are not encouraged, but may participate if they wait until the last wave. The runners’ safety is of utmost importance, therefore, bicycles, in-line skates, and other wheeled vehicles (except wheelchairs) are not allowed.

Can my pet participate?
Pets are NOT permitted in this race. This is for the safety of your pet. Service animals must be approved by the race directors prior to race day.

Can I participate if I am pregnant or have a medical condition?
While the color is 100% safe and non-toxic, this decision is for the participant and doctor. Extra precaution is strongly advised.

How do I volunteer?
Volunteers are essential to the success of the race. All volunteers receive a short sleeve t-shirt. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Brian Morrow at bmorrow@wheatonparks.org or sign up here.
