Description

Note: The primary deadline to register for the race (3/31) has passed and we have run out of T-Shirts to give out. But you can still register! 

Join us for Upper Merion's first Color Run on Sunday, April 8! This half-5K will take place on the fields behind the middle/high schools. You can run, walk, or cartwheel the course! This is a fun run to support the fight against pediatric cancer! The course will be run twice, (each leg being about 1.25km / 0.77mi). You may choose whether to run the full course, only once, or even thrice. 

Each participant will receive a runner goodie pack containing a Color Run T-Shirt, a personal color pack, FTK sunglasses, an FTK inspirational bracelet, and temporary tattoos/stickers. The race is open to all participants of all ages - gather friends and family to sign up in groups to save on registration fees!*

Check-in begins at 9:00 AM, where we will hand out runner packets. The race begins at 10:00 AM, and there will be multiple waves to ensure everyone gets a healthy dousing of color! In addition to the run, there will also be tons of music, games, dancing, and food available before and after the race! The Kona Ice truck will be present and will sell delicious snow cones! And don't miss the mega color toss finale at 11:00 AM, where you will open your color packet and coat you and your fellow runners in colorful-y goodness! More information will be sent out via email as we near the event date. 

It's going to be tons of fun, and remember, it is all #ForTheKids! 100% of profits raised will go to the Four Diamonds Fund and aid in the fight against pediatric cancer.
