What is the Fun Run in Color?
A fun run is an untimed run open to all abilities, from the avid runner to families. Participants can run or walk the route. There will be four color stations with different colors throughout the course.

The color is food-grade quality cornstarch that is bio-degradable, non-toxic and 100% safe. Volunteers will be located at color stations with
bulk buckets of color. Each color station will feature a new color. As runners pass, the volunteers will continue to toss the color at them.

Beginning and ending in downtown Wheaton (Memorial Park, 208 W. Union), the route will go north through neighborhoods and Northside Park.
