The Bozeman Color Me Fun 3K & 5K is the only Bozeman area school event that creates an engaging community celebration where participants and sponsors can support their school of choice arts & fitness programs. In the past two years, over 20 schools have benefited from the Bozeman Color Me Fun 5k. The 5k provides an opportunity for members of the community to rally behind a cause that improves community outlook in an active, fun way.

A color run is an untimed fun 3k or 5k run/walk that celebrates health, fitness, art, creativity and a day out with family and friends, building memories for a lifetime. At the beginning, the participants start with an explosion of color and then pass through numerous color stations at various points along the course. The color is a non-toxic FDA approved colored cornstarch, easily removed. At the finish line, the participants receive 1 more bag of colored cornstarch for the BIG crowd color celebration, creating a rainbow cloud of color. At the end of the race, participants gather around sponsors booths, tents, and activities.This race is open to anyone and everyone, first-time runners, fun loving walkers, families, and children, as well as seasoned runners. Everyone is welcome to this community event! Plus, there is a costume contest!
What began as a way to raise funds for one school became a way to raise funds for all our community school children. The Color Me Fun 5K was envisioned in 2015 by a small group of passionate parents dedicated to improving enrichment and committed to raising the necessary funds to provide an award-winning arts curriculum and high-quality health enhancement education and trips. As the plan for a high quality, affordable family event of the Color Me Fun 5K was developed, the committee knew this event was bigger than one school and could serve not only as an amazingly fun and healthy community event, it could also serve as a vehicle for helping other Montana schools struggling with similar funding deficits.
Here's what last year's runners had to say!
"The most fun I've ever had in a race, hands down."
"I drove 200 miles to do this race in another town. It was completely worth it, and I'm so excited to do one here! I can't wait!!"
"Throwing all the color up in the air at the end was amazing. It was a giant cloud of color. I've never seen anything like it. Everyone should experience it!"
"My kids LOVED LOVED LOVED it!!!
