Join us for our second annual Sampson County Arts Council 5K Color Run and Fun Run- a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. It will be held at the Victor R. Small House in Clinton, NC on November 5, 2016. Come prepared to be drenched with color as a fun family outing or get ahead of the crowd and be prepared to run your personal best before the color erupts. We look forward to seeing all ages, walkers, runners and anybody willing to be a cheerleader along the way. Life is not always about how fast you finish the race but more about the fun you have along the way!
Feel free to wear your normal running attire; the powder will wash out. For those registered in time, a t-shirt will be provided in your race packet.
We love chucking paint and making people smile, but we also think it is important to give back. As a non-profit organization, we are excited to be presenting this color run to raise money to support the arts in our community. To learn more about the Sampson Arts Council and their programming visit www.sampsonarts.org. The start-line window will open at 8:30 AM. Make sure you plan to be at the race in plenty of time to enjoy pre-race festivities including music, dancing, and warm-up stretching!
