Are you ready to get colorful? Then the Oregon Park District has the perfect event for you.

The third annual 1 mile fun walk/color run through Park West will be Tuesday, June 4 at 6 p.m.

"This color walk/run themed course will offer multiple color stations along the route. Be prepared to get colorful and messy!," said Tina Ketter, superindent of recreation. "After completing the course stick around at Park West Amphitheater for the first concert of the summer, The Hat Guys sponsored by the City of Oregon."

All Color Run participants will receive a t-shirt* and sunglasses before the run and a hotdog/hamburger meal complete with chips and water after the walk/run. The race begins near the Oregon Park West tennis courts.

"This fun run is very affordable at only $12 per person. Children 2 and under are free with no t-shirt or meal. Register by Monday, May 20 to be guaranteed a t-shirt," Ketter said. "Come join the fun to kick off the Summer!"
