Show off your "TRUE" colors at the sixth annual Color Me Mutt 5K! Race day is Saturday, September 25, 2021, at NASCAR SpeedPark Smoky Mountains in Sevierville, TN. 

The Color Me Mutt 5K Color Run will start at 8am; with participants in the 1-Mile Color Fun Run/Walk heading out on the course after all the 5K runners have started. The Pet Parade will follow the award’s ceremony for the 5K. We are a pet-friendly event, but dog ownership is not a requirement to participate. 

The 5K Color Run will be a timed event with awards provided to the top overall male and female runners who finish with a dog. We will also recognize the three male and female finishers in each of these age categories: 
14 & under

We 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.

Because life is still unpredictable, we are giving all runners or walkers the opportunity to join the race virtually if you still aren’t ready to commit to an in-person event. Please choose the virtual race registration option. 

All 5K and 1-Mile participants will receive an entry for their dog in the Pet Parade. We’ll announce our four award categories so you can start planning your costumes as we get closer to race day. Best of Show will be presented to the winner of the four categories. 

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. The color used is non-toxic and we will have water stations for both dogs and owners on the race 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 February 28, 2022. Additionally, there will be a slate of vendors promoting their businesses and selling their products – many related to the needs of our animal companions.

All virtual participants will be mailed their t-shirt, commemorative pet bandanna, finisher medal and Unlimited Ride Wristband to NASCAR SpeedPark after the race. Locals will be able make arrangements to pick up their swag bag during packet pickup.
