First Annual 'Color Run' This Saturday, September 14

Winnemucca, get ready for some colorful fun!

The first annual "Color the Mucc" Fun Run will take place this Saturday, September 14.

The 3K or 5K run/walk will kick off at 11 a.m. at the Winnemucca Community Garden and make its way to the finish line at Vesco City Park.

The event, which is sponsored by the Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce and Humboldt General Hospital, has no winners and no official times.

Instead, "Color the Mucc" will simply celebrate wellness, happiness and individuality as hundreds of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer.

Participants are encouraged to wear white to take advantage of the colorful effect. Sunglasses or goggles are also recommended.

All participants will receive some fun event gear, including an official "Color the Mucc" sling pack and a "Mucc 2013" rainbow headband. Snacks and water will also be provided.

Register online at for $25, or the day of the race for $30. Team package prices are also available. Kids and families are welcome to participate, but no pets.

"We invite the community to come and participate in this just-for-fun race," said Humboldt County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Debbie Stone.

"We are excited to make this an annual event, for fun, for fitness and for our community family."
