11:00 am 


Pre-registration is now closed.  Race day registration is available from 9:30-10:45 am at Lakeside Park.

What is the Color Burst 5K?

It's a happy, healthy, fun run for the entire family!  It is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy fun with family and friends.  No matter what your age or athletic ability, the 3.1 miles of the Color Burst course is sure to be worthwhile!

How does it work?

Everyone begins the Color Burst wearing a white Color Burst 5K t-shirt (provided with registration) and finishes looking like a tie dyed vat of colored goodness!  After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around for the post-race celebration with food and refreshments followed by the Color Toss Grande Finale.

Twice the color!

The 3.1 mile course will loop through and around Lakeside Park, with the start and finish near Oven Island. This year the course is a double-loop, giving participants the opportunity to run through each Color Burst Zone, not just once but TWICE!  Twice the color, twice the fun!

Color Burst Zones

There are five Color Burst Zones on the course, each having a different color.  As runners and walkers reach each zone they are blitzed with color by our volunteers.  You will loop around the course two times, going through each Color Zone twice. 

While all products are 100 percent natural and safe, we recommend wearing some kind of eye protection to avoid getting powder in your eyes.
