Fun Run in Color 2022

Sat April 9 - Sat April 23 Wheaton, IL 60187 US Directions

This is no old-fashioned run. This is the Fun Run in Color.

Here’s how it works: You show up in your brightest white shirts, shorts, and shoes and we shower you along the route with vibrant color made from safe, food-grade, biodegradable cornstarch. By the time you cross the finish line, you’ll be a brilliant color palette of warm and cool hues. With wave starts, four color stations, and a final color toss at the after-party, you’re guaranteed to go home wearing colors you’ve never worn before. Have no fear, these colors are non-toxic and easily come off in the wash.

Packet pickup will be held at the Community Center, 1777 S Blanchard St., Wheaton,  from 10A-7P on Thursday, April 7. You may also pickup everything you need on race day at the race location. Packet Pickup will end 15 minutes before the race starts on race day. 

The Fun Run in Color is an untimed 5K run/walk for all ages and abilities, presented by the Wheaton Park District and the Rotary Club of Wheaton AM. All participants will receive a race shirt and a finisher’s medal. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Play for All Playground & Garden Foundation.
