The ROTARYFEST Miracle Mile Colour Blast

There have been a lot of questions about rain. Current forecasts show a little cloud at 11 and a 30% chance of little rain cloud at noon. A little rain won't stop us! (at least it's not snow!)

If we have to make any changes to the schedule, it will be because of a risk to the public such as lightning, and we would make that call at around 10:45am and post here and in the media if anything changes.

Don't forget that Canada Day it poured but cleared just in time for us all to enjoy the fireworks. 

We hope we see you all on Queen Street celebrating the Rotary Club's 100th with us! 


Friday, July 20th from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Center.
(If you are registering as an Individual Colour Blaster, we strongly advise you register on this day to ensure you get your t-shirt size of choice as it will be on a first come, first served basis).
Saturday, July 21st from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Center.

Cost to register is $20 for Individuals (or raise $20 or more in pledges), which includes a bib to mark your entrance into the race, a pair of funky Miracle Mile Colour Blast sunglasses, an individual colour package for the final blast, and a t-shirt!

The cost for a family is $40 per family (or raise $40 or more in pledges) with a maximum of 5 members. Only two t-shirts per family. (Families include 2 parents/guardians and 3 children under the age of 18 who are still living at home. Children aged 2 and under are free.)

There will be two heats for the run: The first heat will have a more competitive feel and will start at 10:35am. This heat is suggested for those participants interested in running the race at a faster pace, and perhaps timing themselves. The second heat will offer a more family friendly feel and will start at 10:40am. This heat is suggested for those who will be running or walking the race at a more relaxed pace.
