About This Activity

With lots of color, a great family atmosphere, and a fun post-race party, you're sure to get a good bang for you buck!  And you're supporting Johnson Elementary while you're at it!

Event details and schedule

When and where is this 5K? This family-friendly race will begin at 8:30am on January 31st at Johnson Elementary (3800 Oak Hil Drive, Bryan, TX 77802).  We recommended arriving earlier.  Bib and t-shirt pick up will begin at 7:15.

Who can participate? The whole family! This is a non-competitive race, good for beginner runners and everyone who likes fun! :)  Children 4 years and up can register to participate, receiving a bib and a shirt.  Children younger than that are welcome to ride along in a stroller or wagon, although we don't have official registration for them.  We encourage you to purchase an extra t-shirt for them, so they can match the whole family!

When and where do I get my shirt and bib?  You can pick up your bib and shirt the day before (Friday, January 30) right inside the front door of Johnson, starting at 2:30pm until 5pm.  You can also pick it up the day of the race, from 7:15-8:15am.

What do you mean by "Color Chaos?" We will have several color stations on the course.  While participants can opt out (by simply running around the stations), the color is harmless and will not stain clothes.  We will also NOT aim for your face.  We will have blowers at the end of the race that can blow off the color before you get back in your car.

Coach Ponzio warned me about drinking lots of water in PE...what if I get dehyrated?  Water stations will be provided along the route.  There will be a station at the start/finish and one station during the course.

Where do I park? You will want to park on surrounding streets.  We recommend you arrive no later than 7:45, in order to park, get to the starting line, find your friends, and get some color!

When it's over, do I just go home? You can if you want....OR you can take advantage of our fun post-race celebration with music, color, and plenty of food-Jamba Juice, The Village, etc!

What do I wear? We recommend wearing your Color Chaos shirt, of course!  You can wear whatever you want-the color will not stain or permanently stick.

Who does this race benefit?  All the proceeds from this race will go towards Johnson Elementary to support teachers and students.  Money will be used for a variety of things, such as classroom supplies, purchasing books, enhancing classroom technology, etc.

Bring nothing but yourself, good shoes, and a smile.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact  We look forward to seeing you there!
