The Ferndale "Rainbow Run" is a fun filled 5k race/walk and those of us who have participated in this event the last few years have had a lot of fun. If you have never done a color run/walk before – this is a great one to start out with – impossible not to have fun doing this.
The run/walk weaves through the friendly streets of Ferndale. Participants receive white t-shirts and along the route volunteers throw non-toxic powdered paint on you. By the end of the race, your t-shirt (and yes, other parts of your body) become decorated with many colors.
The race/walk is not timed - The intent of the race/walk itself – besides having fun – is to celebrate diversity and inclusion and the race is coordinated with the many activities taking place during the Ferndale Pride weekend. Start and stop of the race outside of Rosie O'Grady's.
All proceeds from the event go to area non-profit organizations.
It’s fun, different – and sells out early every year - so sign up as soon as you can and get your color on!
