Parker School to Host Color Stampede Fun Run

Parker School invites the community to come get splashed at the 18th Annual George Heneghan Fun Run and Color Stampede on Sunday, October 29, 2017.

At the color stampede, participants are splashed with different colored powder throughout the race which takes place on Parker School’s lower school campus and in the surrounding neighborhood. This event is open to the public and consists of a 1K Keiki Run which starts at 7:30 a.m. for kids ages 11 and under, followed by a 5K Fun Run/Walk at 8:00 a.m.

“We enjoy providing our community with a fun, healthy event in Waimea with the hope that our school’s athletic department can inspire others to stay active,” says Nicole Vedelli, Athletic Director at Parker School. “It is always a fun colorful event and everyone leaves happy and a little healthier too!”

This community event was established in 1999 in memory of Hawaii architect George Heneghan, an accomplished athlete, teacher and Parker cross country and track coach from 1992 to 1998.
All proceeds from the run will go to support Parker School’s athletics program.

The entry fee is $30 for adults and $25 for kids 11 and under. Register by October 16 to be guaranteed a race kit. Race kit includes a t-shirt, glasses, bracelet, color packet and a beaded necklace. Medals will be awarded to first place overall male and female finishers in the 5K run and 1K run, and first place finishers in each age category.

Parker extends special thanks to this year’s generous Heneghan Fun Run sponsors Big Island Running Company, Five Mountain Fitness, Mamane Bakery, and Ironman Triathlon.
