Race For The Arts Returns On March 1

On Saturday, March 1, the 13th annual Race for the Arts/Celebration of Young Artists and Color Me 4K Fun Run-Walk will be held at Dreher Park South near the Palm Beach Zoo in West Palm Beach.

The event is designed to showcase the fine arts opportunities for students in Palm Beach County and help support the programs. All proceeds go directly to fine arts programs and students in participating schools.

Attendees will enjoy music and artwork courtesy of Palm Beach County students. Art displays and performances will take place at the Dreher Park South Main Pavilion and along the race route. Limited to the first 500 who register, the Color Me Run is for runners and walkers of all speeds, ages, shapes and sizes. Be sure to wear a white shirt or use the one provided. Shirts will be color plastered at the finish. Runners and walkers will begin the 4k at the starting line like a new artist canvas. By the end, participants will be a “work of art.”

Registration and packet pickup starts at 6 a.m. The 5K race begins at 7 a.m. with the Color Me 4K Fun Run at 8 a.m. Students will perform from 7 to 10 a.m.
