Run ‘COLErfully’ Saturday at Pine Valley

It’s like a party within a run. The run is the fourth annual Cloquet Rotary Club Color Run, where runners are splashed with color as they race around Pine Valley. The party inside the event is “Live COLErfully,” as the family and friends of the late Cole Drechsler have unofficially adopted the race and show up in large (colorful) numbers each year to honor Cole’s love for color and for color runs. The race (and the COLErfully laughter and tears) take place Saturday, July 22, at Pine Valley in Cloquet. Runners can choose to do a 2.5K or 5K race. Check-in starts at 7:30 a.m. and the race begins at 9 a.m. A limited number of “Live COLErfully” T-shirts are available for a $10 donation at the race. Race proceeds go towards the Henry Walter Scholarship Fund for the area Junior Rotarian program. Donations are also accepted for the Cole Drechsler Memorial Fund. For more information on the Color Run, check out the story on page B1. To register, visit or go early on Saturday. Cost is $30.
