Spectrum of Colors

Virtual Race Across Greater Wisconsin

September 12 - October 9, 2022

If Fall isn’t your favorite season yet, it will be soon! Our Spectrum of Colors Virtual Race Across Greater Wisconsin celebrates the best parts of the season, highlighting everything from the changing tree colors, apple picking, pumpkin carving, to the return of caramel apple cider!

The Spectrum of Colors Virtual Race Across Greater WI began in 2020 as a way to connect our communities during the pandemic while raising funds for the Autism Society of Greater Wisconsin and our local chapters. The virtual race celebrates the spectrum of beautiful, colorful hues we see flowing through Wisconsin in the fall season. And, it celebrates the diversity of experiences within the Autism community, all while supporting our mission of creating connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. 

In 2022, the challenge will be 4 weeks, beginning on Monday, September 12th and continuing through Sunday, October 9th.


Customize Your Race

Choose Your Swag Package

Choose Your Distance

Challenge yourself with any of the distance choices! You’ll have 6 weeks to log your miles as you walk, run, bike, kayak, or however else you choose to move.

It’s 235 miles to connect our participating affiliates, how many times can we span the distance together? Or create a relay team to cover the distance! If you’re feeling extra ambitious, go ahead and take the full 235 miles on by yourself.  Don’t forget to snap a selfie with your favorite fall foliage in the background!

We’ll provide a Facebook group to stay connected, give updates & challenge you to even more fun fall activities. Those participating will be eligible to win prizes, with extra chances to those completing our weekly activity challenges.

Not looking to log any miles? We’ve got an option for you too! Our Fun No K option includes access to the Facebook page, corn-y jokes, weekly activity challenges, and the chance to win prizes.
