4th Annual RUN for THEIR Lives 5K Color/Fun Run
September 16 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
We are so excited here at Heart of Alabama Save Rescue Adopt because it’s almost time for our 4th annual RUN for THEIR Lives Color Run! Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 16th. Come help save lives and participate in an exciting, family friendly and fun 5K! The race will not be timed and participants are more than welcome to walk the route. The 5K will begin at 9 AM, followed by the Grande Finale color toss at 10:15 and a pet costume contest at 10:30. You can register at runfortheirlives.itsyourrace.com. Prices are $22 pre-registration for ages 12 and up and $17 pre-registration for children under 12 for the 5K, and $10 for the costume contest until September 10th. After this date, the price will go up for the run. We will also have a 1 mile fun run for children, for those with older dogs and those who do not want to participate in the 5K. The price for the 1 mile will be $15 dollars pre-registration.
We recommend you arrive around 45 minutes to 1 hour before the run begins to allow time for parking and registration. During the run, participants and their fur babies are showered with colored powder that is non-toxic, 100 percent safe for you and your pet, and completely biodegradable. If you prefer to not have color thrown on you, you may walk/run around the color stations. We encourage all participants to wear whatever you like but, wearing white will really makes the colors stand out on your clothes! While the powder is not designed to stain, we still recommend that you bring a change of clothes for yourself and towels to for you and your dog to sit on in your vehicle for the ride home. If may also want to bring sunglasses or goggles to protect your or your dogs eyes.
