View invites participants for Running Colors 5K Race on Saturday, Oct. 27

A Running Colors 5K Race, a fun run/walk, will be held rain or shine on Saturday, October 27 at the Old Forge lakefront.

Running Colors is a unique 3.1 mile fun run and walk that is focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family.

At each kilometer, participants will be blasted with non-toxic, environmentally-friendly powdered color.

Runners and walkers are encouraged to begin the race wearing white so they can end covered in vibrant hues.At the finish of the event there will be a color-throwing party followed by a public picnic. Concessions will be available, or you can pack your own picnic.

The first 100 people to register will receive a Running Colors drawstring bag filled with swag including additional color packets to celebrate with.

Pre-registration is $20, or you can register the day of the event for $25.

Children ages 10 and under can participate free of charge if accompanied by a paying adult. Check-in will begin at 9 a.m. and the race starts at 11a.m.

The 5K will begin, and end at the Old Forge Lakefront. Proceeds will benefit View, the arts center in Old Forge.
