Fifth Annual 'Color the Mucc' Fun Run Celebrates Earth Day

Winnemucca, get ready for some colorful fun!

The fifth annual “Color the Mucc” Fun Run returns on Saturday, April 22, in celebration of “Earth Day.”

The 3K/5K fun run will begin at 10 a.m. at the Winnemucca Community Garden and make its way to the finish line at Vesco City Park. Pre-registration begins at 9 a.m.

Following the race, participants are invited to take part in the Winnemucca Domestic Violence Services “Party in the Park,” scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Vesco City Park. The “Party in the Park” will include bounce houses, concessions, games, informational booths and more.

“Color the Mucc,” which is sponsored by the Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce and Humboldt General Hospital, has no winners and no official times.

Instead, the color run simply celebrates wellness, happiness and individuality as hundreds of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer.

New this year, organizers are encouraging businesses and groups to form teams. The largest pre-registered team will be honored with a revolving trophy they can keep until the 2018 event; the most spirited team will receive a $100 Chamber Check to share with the nonprofit organization of their choice.

Participants are encouraged to wear white to take advantage of the colorful effect. Costumes are optional, and sunglasses or goggles are also recommended.

Register online at www.humboldtcountychamber.com, or stop by the Chamber office located at 30 W. Winnemucca Boulevard.

Cost is $25 for adults and $15 for kids ages 6-12; kids 0-5 get in free. Cost for team members is $20 each, and special family pricing for mom, dad and the kids is $50. A t-shirt, backpack and lots of goodies are included for each registrant age 6 and up.

Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Debbie Stone said the “just-for-fun” race offers a great opportunity for the community to gather following the cold winter.

Proceeds from this year’s event will also fund several scholarships at Lowry High School for students interested in entering the business field.

“So we’re looking forward to gathering our community for fun, fitness and family,” she said, “but we are also looking forward to making this investment in our students’ education.”

Contact the Chamber office at (775) 623-2225 for more information.

Kids and families are welcome to participate, but no pets, please.
