Get colorful at the all-new Color Fun Run & Walk, hosted by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, at Woolsey Park on Sunday, September 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Everyone is a winner on the all-ages course over two miles where individuals, teams and families can walk, run, or anything in between. Watch everything you wear transform into a technicolor masterpiece as you pass through five color stations along the route with volunteer colorists dousing participants with food-grade dyed cornstarch. Registration is now open.
“The fun color races are inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi which is now held around the world as a celebration of love, fun and color,” said Carol Lipson, executive director of the HV Arts Council. “This is a new event for us – one for all ages – to celebrate health and happiness.”
The morning begins with a full body warm-up led by Dawn Berman, board member of the HV Arts Council, Pennington Studio for Dance. Then several waves of runners and walkers will be sent on the fun running course passing through five color projection stations. The class concludes with an evening of closing dance, a short performance by dancers from Pennington Studio for Dance, and a group color throw final.
As the name suggests, the Color Fun Run and Walk is all about fun. If you can walk three kilometers and have a good time, this event is perfect. It is not timed. There is no pressure. Capture unforgettable memories at the colorful selfie station. Special recognition will be given to the wackiest individuals or teams! To cool off, shaving ice will be available for purchase.
