Azalea Blossom Festival Color Fun Run
May 6, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
The Azalea Blossom Festival 5K Color Fun Run/Walk will be an event of flying colors, healthy exercise and FUN! Whether you are an experienced runner, just want to come for a good time or somewhere in between, our color run is for everyone of all ages! This is a non-competitive event to encourage fun with family and friends. We will not be timing the event but you will have “the time of your life!” First, you need to come in all white clothing (We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting the color on) and we totally encourage costumes! At the start, you will be sprinkled with a multitude of colors. As you pass each kilometer, volunteers will “anoint” you with another color. By the end, you will be a colorful masterpiece!
Make sure to join the pre-run party festivities with family friendly activities at the TRI-CAP office and after the race at downtown Petersburg for the rest of the Azalea Blossom Festival! Make sure to register your children so they can join in the fun. All participants registered by the deadline will be guaranteed an official Azalea Blossom Festival Color Fun Run/Walk white t-shirt to wear at the event.
Worried about making a mess? Well, don’t be! Our color powder is made in the USA and from food grade quality cornstarch. It is non-toxic, 100% safe, and biodegradable. You may want to bring glasses or goggles for your eyes and/or mask or bandana for your mouth if you are sensitive. If you want a lot of color, plan to run or walk closer to the color throwers. The color does mostly wash out after the event, but some of it can stain. The sooner you wash it the better.
This color run benefits TRI-CAP’s “Race Against Poverty” through family and community centered programs and Pike County Chamber of Commerce’s ongoing effort to improve our community and local businesses. Hope to see you there!
