Show off your "TRUE" colors at the Fifth Annual Color Me Mutt 5K! Race day is Saturday, April 25, 2020, at NASCAR SpeedPark Smoky Mountains in Sevierville, TN. All proceeds from the race will help fund Wilderwood Service Dogs, which trains service dogs for adults and children with neurological issues; and PARC Foundation, the charitable arm of NASCAr SpeedPark, which strengthens families by positively impacting its community partner organizations in Sevier County. The Color Me Mutt 5K Color Run will kick off at 8 a.m., with the 1-mile Color Fun Run/Walk and Pet Parade to follow.
The 5K Color Run will be a timed event with awards provided to the overall male and female runner and for the top three male and female finishers in these age categories: 10 & under, 11-17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and over 60. We are a pet-friendly event, but dog ownership is not a requirement to participate.
We also understand that some of our favorite four-legged friends would prefer a shorter course. If that's the case, the 1-Mile Fun Color Run/Walk is for you! Don't worry, you'll still get showered with color at different locations along the course and get the same swag bag as the 5K participants.
All 5K and 1-Mile participants will receive an entry for their dog in the Pet Parade. Awards will be presented to the best in the following categories: Twinzies (the best dog and owner lookalike), Most Original, Best Fictional Character, Home Spun Magic (best homemade costume). Best of Show will be presented to the winner of the four categories as set apart by most obedient. The winners will be crowned immediately follow the Pet Parade.
Both the Color Me Mutt 5K Color Run and the 1-Mile Color Fun Run/Walk are pet-friendly races! Again, you DO NOT need to be a pet owner to participate. For those with dogs, we love seeing all your pampered pooches each year and it's the perfect way for dogs and their parents to spend time together in an active, healthy and fun environment. All color used is non-toxic and we have water stations for both dogs and owners on the route.
All 5K Color Run and 1-Mile Color Fun Run/Walk participants will receive a t-shirt, one packet of color, a commemorative pet bandanna, a finisher medal and an Unlimited Ride Wristband to NASCAR SpeedPark, valid for use through Friday May 22nd. We are anticipating 500 runners/walkers and spectators for the event. Additionally, there will be a slate of vendors promoting their businesses and selling their products – many related to the needs of our animal companions.
