The Color Within is a 5K Walk/Run fundraiser for all ages. You’ll start off with your own The Color Within white t-shirt (which we’ll supply, or wear one of your own) and throughout the run (or walk), we’ll coat you with color bombs of blue, green, pink, purple and yellow. Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color until you cross the finish line!
Let’s celebrate the color within each of us by getting covered with color on the outside!
When: Saturday, May 26th @ 10:00am. Please arrive before 9:00am to sign in.
Where: Bud Miller Park Picnic Shelter. Open race map here.
The color powder is just colored cornstarch!
What is the cost?
|Youth (10 & Under)||$10 (Includes T-shirt and BBQ)|
|Youth (10 & Under)||Free (Without T-shirt and BBQ)|
Gathering pledges is encouraged—prizes will be awarded for highest pledges received. Find the pledge form here. Please bring your pledge form, along with donations, to the sign in desk on race day.

What happens at the finish line?
Everyone will grab their color bomb and you’ll get your own chance to color whoever you want! Let’s celebrate the color within us all! There will be a BBQ afterward where each participant will receive one free burger or hot dog and drink. Additional BBQ items will be available to purchase.
How do I get clean?
We recommend plain old soap and water, along with some perseverance. The color may stain clothing and shoes but most of it will come out in the wash. If you’re concerned, wear something you’re not afraid to get a little colored!
Note: If you have recently colored your hair, it is a good idea to cover it up as newly dyed hair easily absorbs color (especially blond).
What should I wear?
The white t-shirt we give you or anything else white!
What’s the best way to photograph?
If you want to take pictures, we recommend a ziplock bag to keep your phone or camera safe and color free!
How do I preserve the color in my t-shirt after the race?
Spray your shirt with vinegar, then iron it before washing.
Is the run timed?
No, this race is non-competitive. The only requirement is that you have fun!
- We recommend wearing old sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the color, but they are not necessary.
- If you bring your phone or camera, cover it in a plastic bag.
- Bring a garbage bag or towel to sit on after so you don’t get color on your car seat.
- Wear all white!
- Wash your clothes and shower as soon as possible after the race.
- If you have recently dyed your hair a light color, be sure to protect it with a hat (freshly dyed hair means the cuticles of the hair are still open and absorb color easily).
