August 13, 2015

Run, walk, have a blast, and create your own colorful wearable work of art! Join Healthy Acadia and partners in Machias on Saturday, September 19, for “A Dash of Color," otherwise known as the Cheeriest Run in the Universe.
"A Dash of Color" is an annual 2-mile, non-competitive walk/run sponsored by Healthy Acadia in Washington County, the Machias Bay Area Chamber of Commerce and the University of Maine at Machias. This fun community event encourages families, friends, and co-workers to get active outdoors with activities they enjoy.
Lineup begins at 8:30 a.m. for the 9 a.m. event. The 2-mile course begins in the University of Maine at Machias' Fitness Center parking lot and ends at Station 1898 on Main Street.
The $20 per-person entrance fee ($15 if part of a team of 2 or more; $25 on the morning of the event) will help support Healthy Acadia's youth programs in Washington County, promoting positive social development.

Registration deadline is 12 pm on September 18. Limited late registrants will be accepted the morning of the race until 30 minutes before lineup at 8 am. For more information or to register, contact Angela or Terri at 255-3741 or email angela@healthyacadia.org.
