Special to The PREVIEW
Run under the rising hot air balloons at this year’s Colorfest Color Run.
This 5k is for the entire family. Bring everyone out to become running rainbows as you pass each color station.
Not a runner? No problem. You can walk, skip, hop or roll your way to the finish line. This is an untimed, noncompetitive event for everyone — from the young to the young at heart.
Add some color to your life and come out for a colorful good time. The event begins at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, at Town Park.
Registration opens at 7 a.m., but to guarantee your event T-shirt, we recommend you register early at http://2015colorfestcolorrunwalk.eventbrite.com. Also, visit the website for more event details and a map of the course. The route is mostly flat with all paved roads or sidewalks and very few slopes and small inclines. The event is open to all ages and abilities.
Don’t forget to wear white. The more white you wear, the more we can color you. White shirts, tutus, headbands, bandannas — whatever. And, remember, after you’ve been colored, plan to attend the Music and Micro Brew Festival (tickets sold separately) to hear live music and plenty of brews to tantalize your thirsty taste buds after the run. Fantastic food and family activities will be available for all, too.
All proceeds from the color run are used to support survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community by benefiting the Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program.
ACVAP believes everyone has the right to live free from violence and works to end it in our homes and our community.
Come support such an amazing and “colorful” cause at this year’s Colorfest 5K Color Run/Walk. Call 264-9075 for more information.
