  • The run will start and end in Pysanka Park.

  • This Colour Run is roughly 3 kilometers long, traversing mainly through Vegreville's walking trails. In cases where the route crosses over a public roadway, it is the participant's responsibility to do so safely and to abide by all traffic laws.

  • Watch for signage along the route. 

  • There are a total of FIVE Colour Stations along the Route

  • Be sure to wear white, bring cheap sunglasses/goggles, and have FUN!

Stay tuned for attending Food Trucks!

Be sure to visit our Runner's Check-In Table to pick up a 'Party in the Park' Vendors Passport. Collect a stamp/signature from each of our vendors and return your completed passport back to the table for a chance at prizes!
