What:

The 7th Annual Volunteer Lethbridge Colour Fun Run on April 7th, 2019. A fun and colourful 5KM walk/run, where every person (human or not) is both welcomed and encouraged to participate. This event is not a timed event, therefore everyone who has fun is a winner!

Why:

To raise money for Volunteer Lethbridge’s various community programs. This is one of our biggest fundraisers, growing every year! Expected attendance is up to 500 people! With the help of amazing registrants like you, we have been able to grow this event, to support and foster a healthy and vibrant community. If you would like more information about our programs and services, please visit our website or contact us. www.volunteerlethbridge.com

Where:

Through our amazing partnership with the University of Lethbridge Students’ Union, we are able to hold our event on the safe and spacious University of Lethbridge campus. The run both kicks off and ends in The Grove, on U of L grounds, where you as a participant will check-in, partake in fun games, and check out booths for free swag and warm-up with Zumba by the fun Sheila!

 

Will you be selling merch at the event?

If you would like to have extra fun and get extra colourful then you can purchase Colour Blasters and Colour Balls from our merchandise table! Please bring cash. We will also have a few swag bags to sell if you missed them during registration!

When:

The Colour Fun Run will take place on Sunday, April 7th, with two race times: 1:00PM and 3:00PM. During online registration you will choose which start time is best for you, please try to show up for your correct race time. Keep in mind that 1:00PM and 3:00PM is just when the run kicks off, but we require participants to check-in before they run. We will also have activities before the run such as bean bag toss, Zumba, a photo booth, and music to keep you having fun and warm up before the run kicks off.

Where do I park?

We recommend parking in either Lot E, Lot F, or Lot N for quickest access to The Grove. Parking is FREE on weekends! Volunteers and signage will be available to guide you to The Grove from the parking lots. If you are familiar with the U of L Campus the grove is behind the Student Union and Markin Hall.

 

What do I need to do before/at the event?

  •   Check-In at the run
  •   Share the Facebook event on your social media accounts, and let your followers know you’re supporting this fun and colourful community event. You can use the hashtag #ColourRunYQL

*More Info to come on what to do before the race regarding swag bags and t-shirts.

The Check-In Tent at the run will be clearly labelled and easy to find for your convenience.

 

What do I do when the run is over?

Once the run is over, you’re invited to head up to The Zoo (U of L Campus Restaurant) for the BBQ and gift basket entry! Your meal is included with your registration and you will receive your Meal Stamp when you check-in for the run. If you will have spectators cheering you on at the run, who would like to join in on the BBQ, they can purchase meal tickets for $7.50. Please note that only those with a stamp will be allowed to enter The Zoo. No stamp = no entry = No BBQ. So please don’t wash it off!

 

What are the prizes?

3 Gift Baskets packed full with swag and more from various Lethbridge businesses! There will be a ballot entry at the BBQ, 1 entry per participant. The draw will take place after the event and the winner will be announced on Facebook and contacted on Monday!
