Fun in the Sun VIRTUAL Color Run

The Fun in the Sun Color Run is back for a VIRTUAL challenge!  Lace up your sneakers, grab your sunglasses, and head out on your favorite one mile or 5K course.  Register by December 19 to complete this virtual event.  Then, join the Fun in the Sun club on Strava to submit your results and connect with other participants.

We know times are tough and hope a little bit of bright color powder and sunshine can bring a smile on your face and distract you from the challenges around you.

This virtual event is unlike a traditional race and can be done anytime day or night that works best for you!  Participants can walk, use a treadmill, run outside, or go on a stroll with friends while practicing social distancing.

This family friendly event is open to all ages and fitness levels.  We encourage families and friends to be active together while practicing social distancing.

Your results will be tracked and then shared via Strava (FREE to join, you don’t need a subscription).  You will then be featured on our leader board and join other participants who completed the virtual challenge.
