You’ve heard the 4th annual Run for Hope charity 5k is on Saturday, April 25th and benefits Doctors without Borders but did you know this year’s race also features a color run?!
What’s a color run you ask?
A color run is a paint race, that’s a race where colored power (paint) is thrown at the runners throughout the course. This 5k is less about setting your personal best and more about having fun.
The Run for Hope Color Run is a five-kilometer race that will run parallel to the traditional Run for Hope 5k. There is no additional charge to participate in the Color Run.
There are only two rules, so it’s pretty easy:
1. Wear white at the starting line (for the first 100 registrants this part is really easy – we give you a free t-shirt!)
2. Finish plastered in color
If you want to support the Run for Hope and this year’s charity Doctors without Borders, but aren’t in love with running, the Color Run is the perfect 5k for you!
