Color Run This Weekend

By Alicia Dziak

The Color Run is back! Join other fun-loving peeps for the second annual 3K/5K Color Fun Run/Walk, presented by Color-A-Thon/School-A-Thon. This event is open to the public, which benefits the Springville Elementary School (SES) PTA, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 1, starting and ending at SES.

If you didn’t already sign up, no problem! On-site registration will start at 9 a.m., with the event starting at 10 a.m. sharp. Two routes will be available to follow: one is a 3K (1.9 miles), and the other is a 5K (3.1 miles). Participants will go at their own pace through Springville, all while getting covered head-to-toe in brightly colored, non-toxic, non-staining, food-grade cornstarch color powder by volunteer crossing guards, and at color stations. There are also water stations for refreshment along the routes.

Cost is $30, and includes a drawstring bag, color pack and t-shirt, as supplies last. There is also a free snack tent provided by Bertrand Chaffee Hospital and JoMo’s Meat Roasting and Catering.

The PTA is also providing BBQ pork sandwiches with sides for lunch for $8. 100 lunches are available, on a first come first serve basis (you do not need to be a participant to get lunch).

Event sponsors include the Springville Times, Metro Kirsch Real Estate, Springville Pediatrics, Bertrand Chaffee Hospital, Mary’s Fireside Inn, Emerling Ford, Moore Road Construction, Brickhouse Properties, S&S Taxidermy, Adjusters International/Steven Vanuga, DJ Brad Evans Sound Experience and Main Street Pizza.

Stop out and support your local PTA with this fun and colorful event!
