On Saturday of DIY Street Fair weekend, run to support the Arts programs in Ferndale Public Schools. Join the run and make optional stops along the way to create community masterpieces! Yes, this run is unique. Five huge art canvasses will be set up along the route where you can add your own bit of DIY team art. DIY Art on the Run creations will be mounted and displayed in the Ferndale Public Library event for all to see! Who will you be? Picasso? Pollock? Seurat? Matisse?
The run, sponsored by Meijer, will be loosely timed for those runners who want to track their pace, but runners will not be placed. The race will start and finish along Troy St, one block south of Nine Mile behind the Woodward Avenue Brewers.

Dogs and bikes are prohibited
For the safety of all of our runners…and for the dogs, NO DOGS or bikes will be allowed on the race course.
What happens if it rains?
You will get wet. We will only cancel if the weather proves to be potentially dangerous.
There is no age limit for younger or older runners; however, due to time restraints, the 5k course is recommended for runners/walkers that are 10 years or older.
Wear washable clothing. We are offering fun paint stations throughout the run and, while we will be using water based paint, there is no guarantee that the paint will wash completely out of your clothing. All the paint will be non-toxic and will be in separate stations that can be avoided if you do not want to participate.
Bags and belongings
There is not a bag check. You will need to store your change of clothes/towel/other belongings in
your car or with a spectator who is not participating in the race.
Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds for the DIY Art on the Run. We will hang on to unclaimed packets for one week after the event to be picked up at The Loving Touch in Ferndale.
If you have any questions not answered here, please feel free to email the event coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 248.546.7868 and we would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
