Join the Rainbow Run for Port Angeles School District!Port Angeles, WA - The Port Angeles Elementary Physical Educations (P.E.) Department is hosting a walk/run event based on the Color Runs that are gaining popularity across the nation on Saturday, October 21 at 2 p.m. at Lincoln Park.  This event is open to all.  Cost is $10 per person with shirt purchase, and $5 per person without shirt purchase.

Along the course, participants are sprayed with non-toxic colored powder. “Students and their families have lots of fun being sprayed with paint as they run/walk the course,” explains P.E. teacher Krista Winn.  

“Though the powder is aimed at chest level, it is recommended that participants wear sunglasses or goggles to prevent the powder from getting in the eyes,” continues Winn.  “It is also a good idea to put towels in the car so that the powder does not get on the seats during the ride home.”

Proceeds from this event will go towards purchasing much-needed physical education equipment at each elementary school.  “This is the fourth year that we have offered this event, and it continues to grow each year,” says Winn.  

Each pre-registered participant registered by October 18 will receive a personal powder packet.  White tee shirts are available this year for an additional $5, but must be ordered by October 7.  Shirt size needs to be indicated on the registration form.  Sizes available are Youth S, M, L, and Adult S, M, L, XL, 2XL.  

Registration forms are available at all Port Angeles School District elementary schools, and should be returned with payment to the schools. A parent’s signature is needed on the registration form for children under the age of 18 years old.  Checks should be made out to Port Angeles Marathon Association (PAMA).

Please be sure to fill out the form (link follows) and have it returned to your student's P.E. teacher: Rainbow Run Registration Form
