Due to COVID-19, the Wheaton Park District and Rotary Club of Wheaton AM have made the very difficult decision, in partnership with local public health authorities, to cancel the 2020 Fun Run in Color. The safety and wellbeing of our event participants, partners and vendors, volunteers, event staff, spectators, and community are our top priority.

Here Are Your Options:

Your registration will be transferred to your choice of Light the Torch Night Run (Saturday, October 3) or Reindeer Run (Saturday, December 5).

Your registration will be deferred until Fun Run in Color 2021. You will receive a code when registration opens for 2021 to participate.

Your registration fee benefits Play for All Playground & Garden Foundation. You will receive a tax deductible receipt by May 1, 2020 via email.


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.

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.
