Some local color: Downtown run is coming up

DBA partnered with the J-D Cross Country team will host the 2020 DBA Color Run.

The Downtown Business Association partnered with the Juneau-Douglas Highschool:Yadaa.at Kalé cross country team will host the 2020 DBA Color Run on Sunday, Sept. 6, the business association announced.

The run will be a hybrid event with staggered start time over a 4-hour span, DBA said in a news release. It begins at 10 a.m. at the Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tramway parking lot. In leu of color throwing stops, as a way to provide a safe socially distanced event, there will be “Color Capture” stops along the route.

The run will be led by a colorful scavenger hunt photo contest that follows the 2.2-mile route.

People can enter to win one of three prizes for most colorful take on shirt decoration and most creative photo at one of five stops along the route. Entries for the contest will be taken by posting them to Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #dtjuneaucolorrun.

The event is family friendly and organizers encourage people to wear a buffer when passing individuals on the running route and maintain 6 feet of space between bubbles.

“The DBA is committed to providing a family-friendly downtown, and we see this event as an opportunity to reiterate our support for organizations in our community that lift up families of all types,” said Midgi Moore, DBA President in the release. “and that is why we have chosen to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Juneau-Douglas Highschool Cross Country Team as a way to continue to give back to our community.”

Registration is online-only, available at https://www.downtownjuneau.org/event/color-run/.

Registrants with bubbles of five or more will receive a group discount when registering. Participant packets can be picked up at the Fresh Market Downtown Sept. 4.

Sponsorship for the event provided by Frenchies Floral, Balloons by Night Moods, Sam’s Custom Cookies, Amanda Manacio Photography and Ben Franklin Store, according to DBA.
