About This Activity

The Do the Bloom Color Run is sold out.  We have to order t-shirts and color ahead of time and all of the extra we ordered has been spoken for!  We have almost 500 runners & walkers this year!  Please watch for our 2017 date announcement soon!

The 2nd Annual Do the Bloom Color Run takes place in beautiful Anacortes, Washington.  Enjoy a flat, scenic 5K along our waterfront as we dust you in color.  Your white event t-shirt (and part of your body!) will look like a fun, eclectic piece of art by the end of the run.

Participants will run through at least four color stations along the way and last year, we had an opportunity for an end-of-race color explosion.  The Kids' One Mile Fun Run will lead kids under 12 through at least three color stations.

This is a great opportunity to be active and smile ALL THE WAY!  This event is filled with joy and frivolity and is appropriate for runners (and walkers) of all ability levels.  It is a fun run and though we award the top finishers, it is not a timed race.

Do the Bloom is produced by the Anacortes Arts Festival and the proceeds benefit Public Art Programs on Fidalgo Island.
