2nd Annual

Brighter Futures Run

It’s time to lace up your running shoes and train for the most fun and colorful run in South Sound! The 2nd Annual Brighter Futures Run is set for 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20, on a scenic course near the Tumwater Olympia Regional Airport. Early bird registration rates are available, as are group discounts. And kids 10 and under are FREE with a registered adult (we do need them to register, however). In this 5K, runners and walkers start out in white and go through SIX zones of colorful powder (a non-toxic mix of tempera paint and corn starch). It’s a COLOR BLAST.
