Fort Belvoir’s Child and Youth Services will again help the community’s youngest members start the summer with a unique fitness challenge, June 8 at the Golf Club. The 5th annual Color Run begins at 8:45 a.m. Check-in starts at 8 a.m., when runners get bib numbers, shirts and goggles for the competition. 

The event, sponsored and coordinated by MWR and CYS’s sports and fitness program, is open to all youth ages 4–16 and encourages fitness in children during the summer. Runners will be tested on their endurance, physical strength and mental discipline on a two-mile course with a combination of trails, hills and obstacles. As participants negotiate these challenges, volunteers throw colored powder at them. 

More than 200 ch i l d r e n participated last year. 

The Color Run costs $15 per runner, including a T-shirt and goggles. 

Registration is open through June 7 at CYS Parent Central, 9800 Belvoir Road., Bldg, 200; or online through WebTrac, https://webtrac.
