The International School at Dundee PTA presents the 5th Annual:
Saturday, April 9th
Thank you to our participants, volunteers and sponsors!
We has a blast at the 5th Greenwich Color Challenge on Saturday! The weather held off and over 1000 people were able to enjoy a morning of silly colorful fun! Thank you for coming out and supporting ISD!
We cannot express how thankful we are to all the volunteers who lent a hand over the past weeks to make this event happen. From mixing color to packing race packs to setting up the obstacle course and manning all of the stations on race day, it takes an unstoppable ISD army of wonderful volunteers to make an event like this happen!
The GCC team went above and beyond and the day was fantastic fun and a great fundraiser for the ISD PTA! Congratulations to everyone on that team who lost many hours of sleep and gained more than a few gray hairs to make the day possible!
And thank you to our sponsors! They made it possible for us to raise as much money as possible for the amazing educational enrichment programs sponsored by the ISD PTA!
What is the Greenwich Color Challenge?
The Greenwich Color Challenge is a color fun run that includes a 1.5 mile run/walk and obstacle course including 10+ obstacle stations and 6 color powder stations where participants are dusted with color. It is a wonderful celebration of color, family, friends and fun where everyone gets decked out in their most colorful accessories and comes ready to run, walk, jump, climb, dodge, duck, laugh and have a great time! Come with friends and family and enjoy this fun morning! Over 610 people from all over Greenwich participated at our last live event! We hope you will join us for this colorful event!
When is it?
The 5th Greenwich Color Challenge will be held on April 9th, 2022 at 55 Florence Road in Riverside, CT starting at 9am.

SEE YOU IN 2023!
All proceeds from the Greenwich Color Challenge go towards educational enrichment programs at The International School at Dundee.
What is the colored powdered made from? Corn starch and food coloring.
Will the color come out of my clothes? Generally yes, but the sooner you wash them the more likely they will go back to the original color.
What if I want to preserve the colors in my color run shirt? Try to keep the colored powder on the shirt. Spray vinegar all over the shirt. Iron the shirt while wet with vinegar. Dry the shirt in the dryer. Wear it again!
Can I walk during the Greenwich Color Challenge? Yes; the race is a run and/or walk!
