First Color Run in the Yakima Valley is a Big Hit

Posted: Updated:

NACHES, Wash.--They went in clean and came out multi-colored.

Five-hundred people took part in the Color Naches Fun Run Sunday. The 5k started at the Naches Depot and finished up at Applewood Park.

Organizers hoped to raise around $10,000. The money will be split between the Naches Girls Volleyball Boosters Club and the Yakima Greenway Kiddin' Around program.

"I thought people like to get dirty and contrary to people's beliefs people will pay to get dirty," said Felicia Sanchez, one of the event coordinators. "So I think that this was a fantastic event to test out in the Yakima area."

This was the first ever color run in the Yakima Valley, and it proved to be a huge success. The event immediately sold out.

Coordinators said they'll make it even bigger next year and try to include up to 1,500 people.
