Hope in Motion 5K: RUN IN COLOR
Saturday, April 19, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
Welcome to the 4th Annual Hope in Motion 5K! This year we are proud to announce the returning theme of:
Run in Color!
(**Please note: Early Bird Registration will open on October 1st, 2013**)
Ever heard of the rapidly growing "Color Run?" Run in Color will be fashioned after the nationwide popular 5K. How does it work? Here's a few FAQ's:
*What is Run in Color? Instead of chip/computer timing, this run is unique in encouraging having fun while being active. At each kilometer, you will be dusted with a different color by volunteers with a burst of color at the finish line!
*Is the color dust safe? Yes! Made from specially-made corn starch mixutures, this will be a natural fun dusting. However, if you are concerned for where the dust will land, feel free to use a clean cloth to cover your mouth/nose when running/walking past the color stations.
*Do I have to run? No. You can run, walk, skip, hop, or whatever works for you. There will also be a 1 mile family walk included if you would rather participate in that. During that walk, you will still get dusting, though not all the colors of the 5K, but you can also participate in the finish line burst!
*What else will be happening at the event? Returning with the Family Walk will be Briley's Fun Run! This is a FREE run for kids ages 10 and under (ages will be divided and registration is still required).
*Is there a dress code? Yes....well, no...okay, sort of. In order to have a full experience of the Run in Color, we ask that you either wear the event day t-shirt OR a white tshirt of your own. You may wear any color shorts/pants, but remember that while the dust is natural and safe, there is possibility of staining, so don't wear anything you cherish.
*Why should I participate? We ask, why not? This will be an event that not only allows you to participate as groups or individuals, but releases you of the pressure of being timed or being rushed through the experience! You will have the amazing opportunity to be a part of the community coming together to support something that many are too ashamed to talk about...to show your support...to gain encouragement as you see that YOU are making a positive impact on lives you may have never come across!
