About This Activity

The 1st annual “Color Gauntlet” Wrestling 5K takes place on a scenic, point-to-point course on the Toonerville Trail long the Black River in Springfield, VT. This fun “color run,” is a family-friendly untimed 5K run or walk. Participants will be splattered with colored cornstarch powder along the course. Once participants have finished the run, the shirts ends up being a one-of-a-kind souvenir! The run starts and finishes at the Toonerville Trail head located on Clinton Street. Your registration fee includes a “Color Gauntlet” Wrestling 5K t-shirt, sunglasses, and a bag of colored powder. Post run participants can enjoy food from the Silver Bullet Food Wagon and music from a local artist. The fee for the “Color Gauntlet” Wrestling 5K will be $25.00 per person on or before August 7, 2015 and $35.00 thereafter. Children 10 and under are free but will not receive a souvenir t-shirt, sunglasses, or color powder (these items can be purchased separately on the day of the race). All monies raised will help fund new wrestling mats, tournament entrance fees, wrestling gear, and various wrestling items for the Springfield VT Wrestling Team.
