The third annual Dewey Color Run was held last weekend through the town of Dewey Beach, Del.
A few years ago, Holtzclaw ran a color run in Washington, D.C. While looking for something fun and family oriented to do at the Rusty Rudder, she decided this type of run would be the perfect fit.
“This race is usually our most popular,” Holtzclaw said. “We have a lot more participants than the other races, it’s a lot of fun, lots of families and it’s not a timed event so people can walk it.”
Holtzclaw says the race was very well attended, with more than 700 people involved. Although the event has seen more participants in past years, due to the weather, Holtzclaw was thrilled with the amount of people and the level of energy present on Sunday.
After the event, participants enjoyed pulled pork sliders, bananas, yogurt and more, as well as photo booth and live entertainment.
Proceeds from the Dewey Color Run went to Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding. Holtzclaw says through Ten Sisters Races, the Rusty Rudder is able to give to various charities in the area including The Tyanna Foundation, Dewey Beach Lifeguards and more.
“We wanted to do something family oriented in the town and my boss Alex really likes to exercise. We give a lot of the money raised to charities—it’s all about giving away money.”
Each Ten Sisters Race held by the Rusty Rudder runs through the town of Dewey Beach and includes an after party. To learn more about Ten Sisters Races, visit www.races2run.com/dewey-beach-series.
