Huckleberry Color Fun Run & Walk August 6 at Schweitzer

Hit the trails for this 3rd Annual Family Event

Sandpoint, ID – “Sometimes finding the motivation to get outside needs to come from a really creative source,” says Dig Chrismer, marketing manager for Schweitzer Mountain Resort. “That’s why we love hosting our Huckleberry Color Fun Run & Walk. It’s a great way to get people motivated to hit the trails and have a blast walking or running with their families and friends.”

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. Early registration by July 28 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 6, 2017 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. “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.
