By: Kayla Dodd


Colors for a Cure is excited to announce the new date for the 2017 event! Get ready for an awesome day and join us on Sunday, October 22! Online registration is now re-open!! Registration will also be available on race day for anyone else who still needs to register or pick up packets. PLEASE KEEP YOUR RACE BIBS!!!!!!!!

The schedule of events for race day will remain the same: registration will run from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM at the Five Guys location in Pullman Square, festivities begin at 2:00 PM and the 5k begins at 3:00 PM.

If you have already reserved your tailgating spot you DO NOT have to sign-up again. If your team has not reserved a spot and would like to have one, you may do so by emailing David.Sheils@st-marys.org by October 20, with you request. Tailgating will be along 3rd Avenue. We feel that tailgating brings a special flavor of community as people join together to chat, laugh, eat, and have fun. Important details: There is no charge for tailgate spots. TAILGATING SPOTS ARE ASSIGNED ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS FOR TEAMS. Tailgating setup is between 11 AM and 12:30 PM on Sunday, October 22. C4C provides nothing for the tailgate spot other than the designated space itself. Tailgating spots will accommodate a standard size 10x10 foot pop-up canopy. You will need to provide your own canopy, chairs and tables. There will be no selling of goods and services, but you can bring in food and drinks. We HIGHLY encourage you to bring signs and decorations to identify your tailgating spot and spiff it up to show your team spirit, because an AWARD WILL BE GIVEN AWAY FOR THE BEST TAILGATE!!!!!! 

Don't forget about the contests:

1. T-Shirt Contest! Thanks for voting, our winner will be recognized on event day! 

2. LARGEST TEAM CONTEST - 2 prizes: largest individual/family team & largest business/corporate team.

3. MOST COLORFUL TEAM - Get dressed up & show up!

4. BEST TAILGATE - Tailgate spots are going to be judged this year! So decorate & get into your theme!
