Splash of Color Fun Run 5K April 18, 2015 in Atascadero

The Atascadero Junior High PTO is hosting the family-friendly Splash of Color Fun Run in Atascadero on April 18, 2015.  They are raising money to ‘brighten’ the Academic Programs, Visual and Performing Arts, Technology, Athletics and other programs for their students.

The 3.1 mile course takes you around the outer area of Atascadero Junior High.  There will be 5 different color stations where you will be showered with color powder.  No worries, there is a way to bypass the color stations if you like to stay clean.  Want to register?  Me too!

Run to Open the Atascadero Library Doors – February 4, 2012

I was SO entirely excited to get an email the other day announcing a 5K Fun Run to benefit the Atascadero Library.

First of all, I love libraries. Second of all, there are like ZERO races (minus Hares N Hounds) in Atascadero. A race in Atascadero for the new library?? I’m in LOVE! What’s even more great is that the race is on Saturday (I love when races are on Saturday instead of Sunday). It starts at 9am and you better believe I’ll be there running! Hope to see you there.

Here are the details:
