Everyone looks good in pink – especially when it’s all part of a greater mission, not just a fashion choice. The 2nd annual Pink Up the Pace 5K and 1-Mile Dolly Dash Fun Run is the perfect occasion to don your best rose-colored duds and join the race in this fundraiser for breast cancer research. It’s a color run – so even if your clothing doesn’t start out pink, it will end up that way.
The Pink Up the Pace 5K and 1-Mile Dolly Dash Fun Run will take place on April 27 at Crestline Elementary Field. The event begins at 3 p.m., with the Fun Run kicking off at 4 p.m. and the 5K following immediately after. Prepare to run through clouds of brightly colored pink powder (certified non-toxic) for a perfectly pink finish to your race.
The event is fun for the whole family, with food, drinks, activities, and live music after the races. There’s still time to register and get in on the action. Registration includes an official race T-shirt and a pair of pink sunglasses, and fees are as follows:
- Adult 5K Participant (ages 13 and up) – $30
- Child 5K Participant (ages 4 to 12) – $20
- Adult Dolly Dash Participant – $30
- Child Dolly Dash Participant – $20
- After Party Only (includes a race T-shirt) – $30
Packet pickup will be on Friday, April 25 from noon to 6 p.m. at Crestline Village in front of City Hall. You can also grab your packet before the race on Saturday, starting at 3 p.m.
