The Color Run returns to Seattle on May 8th. This 5k fun run promises to be a good time, thanks to colored paint throws, colored foam zones, and even a Rainbow Beach party at the end of the finish line.
If all of that sounds like your idea of paradise, join us as a volunteer! As a part of the “Happiest 5k on the Planet,” you’ll be indispensable in creating the vibrant atmosphere this race is known for, while you hand out water, assist with check-in, rev up the crowd at the finish line, toss color on passing runners or clean up confetti. We’re looking for anyone age 14 and up who want to keep runners hydrated, motivated, and more importantly: colorful! Volunteers are needed May 8th for shifts from 6:00am-9:00am, 6:30am-12:30pm, and 10:00am-2:00pm at Seattle Center. You’ll receive a free shirt and our everlasting technicolor gratitude. To sign up, visit this page.
If you are interested in running the race, you can also sign up to volunteer. If you volunteer to be part of the check-in party on Saturday, May 7th from 10:30am-3:30pm or 3:00pm-7:30pm at Seattle Center or at Southcenter Mall, you’ll get race entry on Sunday and the participant kit for free. The kit includes a shiny medal, wristbands, t-shirt, paint powder and stickers. To sign up, visit this page.
So join in on the fun! You’ll have the chance to enjoy the shade of palm trees, enjoy island music, take part in unique photo opportunities, and join in on the fun at the Rainbow Beach Party at the end of the race, all while helping RMHC.
