The 2017 Rainbow Run weaves through the residential streets of Ferndale on Saturday, June 3, 2017. All ages enjoy the fun as the route takes them through various multi-hued stations. Compare your color when everyone crosses the finish line splattered in vibrant rainbow.
**For the 2nd year** Canine Color Walk!
You and your dog are welcome to join the fun in the Canine Color Walk. Take your best friend on a prismatic 2K trot through the Rainbow Run course. Each pup will get a white bandana that will can be colored on their rainbow route.
Produced by the Ferndale Area Chamber of Commerce, the Rainbow Run is for everyone who supports diversity and acceptance, supports anti-bullying programs, and believes we cannot be complete until all persons are included. This celebration of the colorful diversity of the community takes place the weekend of Ferndale Pride.
A portion of our proceeds will support seven (7) great organizations: Blessings in a Backpack, Camp Casey, Ferndale Police Auxiliary, Habitat for Humanity, Pride, Team GUTS, and the Ferndale Area Chamber of Commerce.
Our family-friendly event has something for everyone. If a run is not your style, try the 2K walk. Strollers are welcome in any of the run/walk events, but please no bikes on the course, or dogs on the non-canine walk.
It's all about the fun. Because runners will most likely slow down as they go past each color station, it's more about the fun than the performance. We won't be timing this event and runners will not be placed. However, if you would like to time your run, we recommend bringing your own timer.
Registration will begin at 8:30 am.
The run / walk start times will be staggered by category starting at 10:05 am. The race will start and finish in downtown Ferndale at corner of Troy and Allen Avenue.
