What is The Color Run™?
The Color Run™ 5k is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family. Color runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life!
Franklin Street ‘Color Me Fun 5k‘ will take place on April 20th at 8a.m. on 2000 West Franklin Street. Early registration is $35 and Race Day registration is $40. Kids 12 and under pay $15. We will be making a small donation back to the Evansville Running Club for helping us put on this event. The remaining funds will go back to us to help us pay for this event as well as upcoming future events. In order to continue to have stellar events such as this, we have to make our funds somehow. We are a nonprofit organization. However, we’re hoping that we’ll eventually have enough money to start making donations to local organizations sometime soon!
How does it work?
The Color Run™ event pretty much has TWO SIMPLE rules: 1) White shirts (which we will provide) mandatory at the start line. And 2) color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish! Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book. By the end, they look like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness.
What is the Color?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: yellow, orange, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Kilometer COLOR Zones, they are blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like (we have tried it and don’t suggest it, it is surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste). See the diagram below for the COLOR ZONE specifics. Of course, we save the best for last, ending the race with a color extravaganza of epic proportions.
