Celebrating our 15th year, the event will include a One-Mile untimed Color Fun Run followed by a 5K chip-timed Run/Walk race for all calibers of runners and walkers. Every year over 1200 community members of all ages come together to enjoy fitness and family time and now some color!

The 5K picturesque race route runs through the historic neighborhoods of Downtown Rochester, the Rochester Municipal Park, the Paint Creek and Clinton River Trails.

Proceeds from the race will support the social-emotional wellness workforce within the Rochester Community School District!
