Huckleberry Color Fun Run & Walk August 5 at Schweitzer

Hit the Trails for this 4th Annual Family Event

Sandpoint, ID – Schweitzer Mountain Resort is looking forward to the 4th Annual Huckleberry Color Fun Run & Walk on August 5, 2018. “We love this event for so many reasons,” said Marketing Manager, Dig Chrismer. “Just watching everyone laugh as they get color bombed is such a fun twist on a trail run. This is a unique type of trail experience that is great for runners and non-runners alike.”

The resort will offer a 5K and a 2.5K loop for runners and walkers of all ages. Both courses start at 10am in the village and pass through several color zones where runners are showered with a biodegradable color dyed cornstarch. Participants finish back in the village in time for the group color toss. Registration by August 4 includes fun run entry, a commemorative t-shirt to show off all the accumulated color, sunglasses, a powder pack for the group color toss and a gourmet hot dog with huckleberry and veggie embellishments. Registration also includes a complimentary scenic foot passenger lift ticket valid for August 5, 2018 only.

“There’s such a good variety of hiking trails at Schweitzer and this event introduces some of our favorites to the community,” adds Chrismer. “Trail running can seem daunting but when it’s paired with live music and vibrant color all around you, then it’s all about fun. The whole day is just a wonderful way to enjoy getting outside as a family.”

All of Schweitzer’s village activities and restaurants, including Sky House, will be open to the public from 11am to 5pm. For more details on the zip line, horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing wall or to register for the Huckleberry Color Fun Run and Walk, visit www.schweitzer.com.
