West Union Parks and Recreation will be holding their second Color Run in 2015. It will be held on July 4, 2016, at 9 a.m. starting and ending at the Aquatic Center in West Union, IA. All proceeds from this event will be given to the Wounded Warrior Project.

This is fun run/walk and will not be timed. It is a great activity for families to do together. Join us at the Aquatic Center at 1 p.m for our annual Aquatic Center Carnival.

This will be 5k walk/run partly on the high school cross county course and partly through our Recreation Park. It is mostly on grass.

Fees: Before the deadline of June 13, 2015 $25 for ages 13 and over; $20 for ages 12 and below. After the deadline, the fees will be $40 and $35 respectively. [Registration Form]
