Howard Color Run This Saturday!


1st Annual Howard Dragon’s Color Run is this Saturday, April 28th!

A few reminders and some info leading up to the race.


Due to the number of runners and volunteers we will have along the route, you MUST be registered to run and you must be visibly wearing your race bib to be allowed on the route. Due to the safety of others, if you are not registered to run you WILL NOT be allowed to run alongside your child/family/friends. There will be no exceptions to this.


Packet Pick-Up will be at Howard Elementary School

1611 N. York, Dearborn, MI 48128

Friday, April, 27th 3 – 6pm

Packet Pickup time on Race Day Saturday, April, 28th 7:30 – 8am

We strongly encourage ALL participants to make time to pick up these items on Friday, April 27 because of how many people we have registered this year as it will make everything run more efficiently. However, if you are completely unable to make it on Friday, race-day pickup will be available. At packet pick-up you will receive your t-shirt, race bib, color packet(s) (if you ordered extra), and raffle ticket.

***Remember to bring your e-tickets that where emailed to you after registering.***


Please note there is NO ON-SITE PARKING the day of the event at Howard Elementary since the roads will be blocked off. For your convince we will have a shuttle bus that will be taking participants every 15 minutes during the time period of 7 a.m. – 12 p.m. from the Dearborn High School parking lot located at 19501 W Outer Dr, Dearborn, MI 48124


1 Raffle ticket is included in every participant’s packet. If you would like to purchase additional raffle tickets you can buy them at packet pick-up or the Howard booth event day. This is a cash only purchase. Each ticket is $2 and you must be present at the time of the drawing to collect your winnings. The drawing will be held at 10:30 am. There are over 3 dozen prizes to be raffled off.


The color packets will be used for the finish line mass color throw. This creates the infamous color cloud. This is where you’ll want to use the color pack you received in your race packet. If you have used your color pack, or would like to purchase additional color, we will have a very limited quantity for sale at packet pick-up on Friday, April 27. First come… first serve! Cash only.
