College of the Redwoods Dash of Color 5K Run/Walk
College of the Redwoods is hosting their 4th annual color run on April 2, 2017. The Dash of Color 5K Run/Walk will be held on the Eureka campus, with the start and finish in the Community Stadium. The event begins at 10:00am on April 2, with check-in starting at 9:00am. Funds raised by the Dash of Color will benefit CR’s track & field, cross country and football programs, as well as the CR Foundation.

This untimed family friendly event emphasizes fun over competition, with runners/walkers beginning the event dressed in clean white t-shirts and then passing through color stations throughout the course. Each color station is staffed with volunteers who are spraying the runners with dyed cornstarch. Runners complete the course covered in a safe and colorful powder.

Early registration will take place through March 20th, with the entry fee for adults $30 and $15 for children (13 and under.) The first 300 people who register will receive a commemorative Dash of Color race bag.

After March 20th prices will increase to $40 for adults and $20 for children.

Online registration ends April 1st at 4:00pm. You may also register the day of the event beginning at 9:00am at Community Stadium.
