Currently, community members can register for the kids fun run for $15, and for the 5K run/walk for $25 per participant. All registrations must be completed using the online form.

Participants and spectators can purchase additional color packets, as well as kid and adult sunglasses, from the online race store. After April 21, registration prices will be $20 for the kids fun run and $30 for the 5K.

The Color Run will take place on the new nature trail/cross country course at the Broadalbin campus on Saturday, May 5. The day will begin with a one-mile kids fun run at 9 a.m., followed by a 5K run/walk at 10 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in both races.

Race day will also feature food vendors selling popcorn snow cones, hot dogs, hamburgers, macaroni and cheese, snacks and drinks. Sunglasses and additional color packets will also be available for purchase.

All registration packets and purchases can be picked up noon-4 p.m. Friday, May 4, or starting at 7:30 a.m. on race day, Saturday, May 5.

Note, both races will be clock timed. Paid registration is not required for kids 3 years old and younger. Although strollers are allowed, participants should be aware that the course is not paved and should plan accordingly.

Race proceeds will support wellness initiatives for students at Broadalbin-Perth schools, including a district-wide Wellness Day, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) and post-prom activities.
