Mark your calendars for the happiest, most colorful, and foamiest run on Saipan—the Triple J Saipan 5K Bubble Color Run/Walk set for March 7.
Proceeds from the 2nd Annual TJ5K 2020 Bubble Color Run/Walk will go to the event’s two beneficiaries, the Make-A-Wish® Foundation, aiding them in their mission to grant wishes to children with life-threatening diseases; and the Commonwealth Cancer Association as they continue in their mission to promote cancer awareness and prevention, providing patient support services, and serving as the liaison and advocate for cancer issues in the CNMI and the region.
Early bird registration opens on Monday, Feb. 17, to March 6 until 4pm for a rate of $10 per registrant. Locations for registration are: Surfrider Resort Hotel in Chalan Kanoa, Payless SuperFresh & Truckload Store in the Townhouse Center, Triple J Motors on Beach Road, and Hertz Rental in Garapan next to Tony Roma’s. For more details, follow Triple J affiliates (Triple J Motors, Great Harvest Bread Co. Saipan, Surf Club Restaurant, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Saipan, Capricciosa, and Tony Roma’s) on social media for the most up-to-date information, general event facts, and a chance to win a free entry for you and a friend. Triple J will give away a few free bibs for runners to join the foamiest color run on Saipan so follow us on Facebook and Instagram for contest details.
Not much of an early bird? No problem! Runners can also register event morning for a $15 fee. Each registered runner will receive a custom event T-shirt and the opportunity to get “colored” during the race, a race bib to track individual start-to-finish time, and a raffle entry for thousands of dollars’ worth prizes. But that’s not all CNMI. If you arrive early, we will host a Zumba warm-up class to get all runners loose for the 6am start time!
After the TJ5K 2020 Bubble Color Run/Walk Triple J invites all participants to jump in or run straight into the famous TJ5K foam pit, safe for all ages—a signature event activity of all Triple J Bubble Color Run/Walk events. What is a foam pit? Join the TJ5K 2020 Bubble Color Run/Walk and experience it for yourself.

Thanks to our business partners, an endless supply of refreshments from Pacific Trading Co. featuring Gatorade, Frappuccino, and much will be offered to keep everyone hydrated and alert as a live emcee raffles off thousands of dollars’ worth in prize packages and giveaways.
