For kids ages three to 11, the cost is $5 for members and $10 for others. Children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants can register as a team. In addition, the 2 p.m. wave of the run will be pet-friendly. Leashed dogs that are up-to-date on vaccinations will be permitted.

“The Y wanted to create a fun run that would be suitable for the whole family and for all fitness levels. Last year’s Color Me Healthy Fun Run turned out to be an amazing event. It was a beautiful day and it was great to see family and friends enjoying colorful, active fun together,” said Teri Saccal, Y Senior Director of Healthy Living.
