About This Activity
Cary High students have been working with the community to raise the funds needed to help start a world-class educational system in the world's newest country - South Sudan. Your participation in our Students for South Sudan 5K/Color Run will help us meet these needs. Proceeds from our event will be used to fund a three-year certification program for teachers in our partner schools in South Sudan. The three year training cost per teacher is $490 and our goal is to raise $20,000 this year. As a participant in our event, you can select either the competitive 5K or non-competitive 5K/Color Run that kicks off & ends at Cary High's Stadium. We hope you will join us!
Event details and schedule
T-shirts are included in the price of registration. Additional T-shirts will be sold on site the day of the event.
A course map will be provided to participants upon arrival.
The events will be held at Cary High School in Cary, NC. Both races start at 9am with competitive runners in the front of the pack and non-competitive 5K/Color Run participants towards the back.
The race will take place in the residential neighborhoods surrounding Cary High School. The race starts & ends at Cary High's Stadium.
On-site registration will start at 8:15 for both races. Upon arrival, stop by the Check-In station to receive your bib and any other important information.
Parking is available at Cary High's Stadium. If overflow parking is necessary, directional signs & helpful volunteers will point you in the right direction.
Please bring identification with you. IDs should include your name, address, and an image of you. If you registered a child or minor (under 18), please provide documentation for them as well.
What to Bring?
Please bring your registration confirmation with you. This will make checking in a smooth & easy process.
What to Wear?
For the competitive 5K, please wear the running gear that suits your style. For the non-competitive 5K/Color Run, wear clothing that you feel comfortable having biodegradeable, non-toxic colors thrown at you while running. These colors come with the claim that they will come out in the wash. We cannot verify those claims.
This is the 2nd annual 5K/Color Run benefitting our school club, Cary High Students for South Sudan, and we hope to have food trucks, community organizations, and other attractions set up on site. After the race, hang around and join in the fun. There will also be donation jars on site in the event you would like to contribute additional funds to the organization.
