COLOR OF HOPE Hospice 5K Color Run 

Register now for the event known as the happiest run/walk in the world: the COLOR RUN!

It's not timed because, well, it's all about FUN.

Prepare for a party of color at the finish line. Wear white and bring a camera: you'll want to share pics of yourself doused in a rainbow of color.

Oh, and the best part? You get to have a great time, get a little excercise, AND you're doing GOOD:  all proceeds go to Hospice Care Plus! Win-win!

Register online through September 24. After that, please register in person on the day of the event. Thank you!

So, what IS a Color Run?

It's a run or walk, but it feels much more like a party. There's music, a live remote from a local radio station, the color dousing as you progress through the race, and then the big color party at the finish line. There are multiple color parties at the finish line to accomodate all the waves of runners and walkers, so feel free to join in as many as you'd like!

The powder, by the way, is cornstarch-based, non-toxic, and non-permanent. 

Handy Tips

Wear white or light-colored clothes. You'll want the color to show!

Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes. No one will be tossing the colorful powders at your face (well, unless you WANT them to!), but it's a good idea to cover them up, just in case.

Don't forget the camera! Or, at least have someone at the finish line ready to take your pic. Sharing your rainbow-colored selfies on Facebook or other places is a HUGE part of the color-run fun!

Bring a towel. You might want to dust some of your rainbow off before you get into your car. 

But, I've never done a 5K!  This is an untimed race. That doesn't mean you can't use it as a way to set a goal for yourself, though. If you've never done a 5K, this is the PERFECT place to start: non-threatening, enjoyable, and fun!  Set a goal. It may be that you simply want to finish a 5K, regardless of whether you walk or run--or both. It may be that your goal is to run or jog the entire 3.1 miles.  There are many resources online to help you prepare for a 5K, especially if you hope to jog or run the entire distance. Google "couch-to-5K" for great resources. If it isn't your first 5K, you can still set a time goal and keep time yourself.
