Check back for this year’s race route to be posted.
The Fun Run in Color 2021 will host an after-race color party following the race. Be sure to stick around for DJ entertainment, giveaways, and the final color throw!
Teams must sign up and pay together at the time of registration. Additional runners can be added to the team once the minimum four (4) person team count is met. Teams must consist of four or more people. Team pricing from now until March 17 is $30 per runner, before increasing to $35 per runner between March 18 and April 13. If you have problems adding a member to a team, please contact race director, Amy Seklecki at 630.510.4989 or email@example.com.
The color is food-grade quality cornstarch that is biodegradable, 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 toss the color. If you are pregnant, or experience asthma, consulting your doctor before running is strongly encouraged. Some people will wear a bandana over their face to inhibit any additional dust in their face. There are paths that allow you to avoid color if you wish.
