The second annual Cloquet Color Run presented by the Cloquet Rotary Club will take place at Pine Valley in Cloquet on Saturday, July 18, 2015.

Check in time is 8:15 am with the race starting at 9am.

The Cloquet Rotary Club brings this event to Cloquet again this year to raise money for the Henry Walter scholarship fund for the Carlton, Cloquet and Esko High School Junior Rotarian program as well as other local projects. The Junior Rotarians, who are selected from their high schools to attend weekly meetings of the Cloquet Rotary Club and volunteer during special events, plan and help run the entire Color Run event. In fact, the idea of a Color Run was suggested by last year's Junior Rotarians.

What is a Color Run? It is a 2.5 k run held in Pine Valley, where there's lots of parking, restrooms and a sound system. The racers usually wear white and as they run, cornstarch colors will be showered on them from 4 color stations. It is not timed and racers can either walk or run. At the end of the race the runners shower each other with more color for a grand finale. Last year we had runners of all ages, from children in strollers to grandparents.
