Registration open for Denton ISD FFA’s April 9 color run

Registration for the Denton ISD FFA program’s first color run on April 9 is now open, with all proceeds for the event benefiting program directly.

The roughly 2-mile race will take place at LaGrone Advanced Technology Complex, located at 1504 Long Road in Denton, with participants running through color sprayers throughout the course to end the event colors than they began. Runners are encouraged to wear a white shirt that will show off the race’s many paint colors best.

Participants who register early are guaranteed a race bib, color packet and T-shirt. To register, visit www.dentonisd.org/ffarun. Registration funds raised by the color run will go toward scholarships for graduating seniors, program travel and other expenses involved in each Denton ISD high school’s growing FFA chapter.

Check in for the April 9 race will begin at 10 a.m., with the run itself starting at 10:30 a.m. Registration materials can be picked up at the event.
