Temecula hosts virtual F.I.T. Fun Color Run


TEMECULA – The city of Temecula announced that the annual Fitness in Temecula Fun Color Run event will be held virtually. The “race at your own pace” run allows participants to select their own race course, preferred date and time. Entrants will track their miles using a device of their choice and have two weeks to complete the run, starting Sunday, Sept. 20, and ending Sunday, Oct. 4.

Runners have two package options to choose from: basic or premium. The basic package includes the official F.I.T. Fun Color Run T-shirt; finisher’s medal; three individual packets of powder in vivid colors; customized hand sanitizer and a pamphlet with fun obstacle course ideas to make the run even more exciting. The premium package comes with everything in the basic package, plus a colorful racing bib; cheer poms; washable sidewalk chalk; additional color packets and squeeze bottles to really move that color around.

“Although we are still unable to gather together as a community and participate in person, we can all still enjoy the virtual Color Run,” Zak Schwank, Temecula city council member and president of the Temecula Community Services District, said. “Now, we all have the opportunity to run the race whenever is best for us during the two-week timeframe. So, get out there, get some exercise and have some fun while you get your color on, Temecula.”

Participants can also have their package shipped directly to their home for an additional fee, or they can come by Temecula’s Community Recreation Center Saturday, Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to noon for contactless drive-thru pickup. The city is offering a $2 discount per person for groups of two or more. The discount will be applied automatically during checkout.
