Kid’s Color Run

Kid’s Color Run

This course will be an obstacle course on the east side of Orting Foothills Trail, starting at the Starting line, and winding around to the skate park where it will go back and forth in grass, gravel and on pavement up and over several dirt hills. There will be many support staff and parents involved in covering participants with powdered colors of all kinds, along with getting wet (weather permitting). It may go by the fire station and police department where staff may be on-hand to participate in some surprising ways! It will then wind back around and finish at the finish line of the marathon. You may walk, jog, or race this event, but the course is not able to accommodate Wheelchairs/Hand cranks. If those with wheelchairs/Hand cranks sign up to participate, they will be able to complete the section of the race that is on pavement, and accommodations will be made.
