    Color 5K FUNd Run Is On Rain or Shine!

    There is plenty of fun planned for the Westonka 5K FUNd Color Run this Saturday, May 20! The FUNd Run starts at 9 a.m. at Mound Westonka High School. This is a rain or shine event—the colors used actually become more vibrant when wet!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I still register? YES! Stop by packet pickup and register in person: MWHS North Entrance, Friday, May 19, 3-7 p.m. or Saturday, May 20, starting at 7:30 a.m. behind Thaler Arena.

    Where do I pick up my registration packet? The MWHS North Entrance, Friday, May 19, 3-7 p.m.or Saturday, May 20, starting at 7:30 a.m. behind Thaler Arena.

    My dog loves to run with me, can I bring him? Sorry, Fido must sit this one out. Per Westonka District Policy, pets are not allowed on school grounds.

    What should I wear? Dress for the weather, but make sure to wear some colorful flare! We will have several fun items for sale at packet pickup and at the event!

    I want to throw a lot of color at my friends, how can I get some? You’re in luck! We will have color packets available for sale at packet pickup and at the event!

    I heard it might rain, will you cancel the event? No WAY! This is far too big of an event to allow a bit of rain to ruin our day! We will be following Westonka District guidelines for severe weather; however, it looks like it may be just a bit wet. Can we say Color-Mud Run?

    Where should I park? Grab some friends and come together! Parking is available at MWHS, across from MWHS in the sports field parking and at Hilltop Primary School. There is NO PARKING ON THE ROUTE.

    What should I bring? One of our amazing sponsors, Al & Alma’s, has provided bags for the event. Pack it with some cash for Color Run Swag and fun treats after you RUN, WALK, SKIP, HOP or DANCE your way through our 5K. You might want to bring a small towel so you don't get your car colorful.
