Color Run!

We are very excited to announce San Juan del Sur Day School’s first Color Run! It will take place on Saturday, February 27th in the late afternoon/early evening. Runners will receive a white shirt with a logo designed by a Day School student. We will pass by several restaurants around town and be covered in multi-colored powder as we run, creating a one-of-a-kind dyed shirt. This shirt will also become a school shirt for students.

There will be three distances: a short kids’ “fun run”, a 5k, and a 10k. The fun run is open to children 8 and under, and the longer distances are open to children of all ages, as well as adults.

For non-running members of the community, we will also need volunteers to be stationed at the designated restaurants in order to throw the colored powder at the runners. Please message Gina DiPiero if you are interested in volunteering for the event, or have a business that would like to donate money to help cover costs or prizes for race winners. Donations of $100 or more will have their business logo featured on the back of the shirt.

The race will cost $15, and there will be opportunities for runners to get sponsors to pledge money for each kilometer run. If your child receives financial aid and needs financial assistance for this race, please let us know by messaging Teacher Gina. If you are interested in sponsoring a scholarship student, please also let us know. All proceeds for this event will go to the San Juan del Sur Day School scholarship fund.

There are three ways to register:
-in person at Fight Club Gym
-by sending the following in your child’s backpack: exact change along with the names, shirt sizes, and distance (5k, 10k, or 1k “fun run” for children 8 and under) for each family member who wants to run
-by using this form: If you use the form, please note that your registration will not be finalized until we receive payment of $15 for each runner.

February 8th will be the last day to register and guarantee the correct t-shirt size. This will also be the last day to confirm a business sponsorship of $100 or more to guarantee your logo on the back of the race shirt.

See you at the starting line!
