The Erie Sports Commission will provide a limited number of entries to the sold-out The Color Run to volunteers who help out at two local events on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, June 22. Volunteers must help at both events in their entirety to receive the free race entry.
Interested volunteers should email mailto://  for details.

The Color Run, which is coming to Downtown Erie on Saturday, August 9, sold out in less than one month in March. According to The Color Run’s official website, the Erie race was one of the fastest to sell out in an extensive 2014 tour.
Over 10,000 people will participate in The Color Run 5K, which will start in front of the courthouse on 6th Street and conclude with a colorful finish-line festival in Perry Square. The event will serve as a kick-off for Celebrate Erie.
More than a million people have participated in The Color Run, which boasts a presence on almost every continent on Earth. The Color Run is an untimed 5K race in which thousands of participants start the race wearing white and are doused from head to toe in different colors along the event course.
