The “Really Close to Almost Together Virtual Color Run/Walk”

Virtual Run – Race where you are

These are difficult times for us all. The necessary response to this pandemic has far-reaching impacts. As a result, we will NOT be holding an in-person Color Run on June 6, 2020. For the safety of all of our supporters, volunteers, employees and sponsors, we have decided to convert to a Virtual Run.

This format will allow us to extend the race timeframe; the virtual race will open soon and end on October 4, 2020 to coincide with the conclusion of our Veterans Refresher Training. Veterans and their service dogs from the last nine years are brought back to our campus during this training to refresh both their own skills and their dogs’. We are working on a plan to include these veteran/service dog graduates in a Facebook Live event on October 4 to conclude the virtual run/walk.

Between the opening of the run and October 4, we will be engaging with participants through a Facebook Group. Our plan is to share photos and videos from our trainers and veterans, and to prompt participants to share your own photos. This group has always amazed and inspired us with the heart and creativity that you bring to the Color Run, and we are excited to see what new ways you find to express your support and encouragement for our veterans.

Join us on our Facebook event page too! Stay in the know and commiserate with your fellow runners!
