THANK YOU for attending this event! Check out our Facebook page for event photos after the races! The Bubble Block Walk and Wendell Color Run/Walk will take place Saturday, July 13, 2019! We are now accepting registrations. We also feature group/team and multi-person pricing!


Join us for some BUBBLE and COLOR 5k RUN FUN in Wendell, Minnesota on Saturday, July 13, 2019! This takes place during the Wendell Days Softball events, so pull up a lawn chair for the day because watching the softball tournament is completely free. 

If you have any trouble registering online, email or call 218-458-2217.

Check-in for the BUBBLE BLOCK Walk/Run and COLOR 5k Walk/RUN begins at 6:45am-7:45am at the Wendell Water Tower (trust us, you'll see it in the sky!). Free parking is available near the water tower, at the local community center where the Wendell electronic billboard is located, and throughout downtown Wendell.

The BUBBLE BLOCK Walk/Run will kick off our events at 8am. This is a one-block walk/run/stroll through beautiful, magical bubbles! It is to be enjoyed by all ages, especially children and those in strollers. This event is FREE to children ages 10 and under with a responsible, paying event partaker to chaperone them.  We just ask that folks with strollers start up from the rear so our faster runners/walkers can cruise ahead. Ages 11 and up, the cost is just $7. Funds go to Redwood 4-H educational programming and community improvement projects!

The Wendell COLOR 5k RUN/WALK FUN shall immediately follow, about 8:15am. Walkers are also welcome, just please begin from the back if you plan to walk. Race will be untimed, staggered start depending on number of participants. Get ready for all kinds of COLOR! Those who register online for the COLOR 5k by June 25 will receive a complimentary white logoed t-shirt so they can get an awesome color explosion! (We will do our best to fill t-shirt orders past this date, however we are unable to guarantee due to ordering time constraints. *Update - additional t-shirts have been ordered, so there's a good chance of being able to fill most orders at this point.) Bring glasses if needed for eye protection! Individual registration is just $30 and includes an event bag!

We recommend covering your cameras or phones in plastic if you must bring them. Bring a towel for after the race for your vehicle to sit on. Color is non-toxic, made in USA, cornstarch based. More info, rules on
