Get colorful at the all-new Color Fun Run & Walk, hosted by Hopewell Valley Arts Council, at Woolsey Park on Sunday, September 19 from 11am to 1pm. Everyone’s a winner on the all-ages two+ mile course where individuals, teams, and families can walk, run, or anything in between. Watch whatever you wear turn into a technicolor masterpiece as you pass through five color stations along the route with volunteer color-blasters showering participants in food-grade dyed cornstarch. Registration is now open.

“Color fun runs are inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi that now takes place around the world as a celebration of love, fun, and color,” said Carol Lipson, executive director of the HV Arts Council. “This is a new event for us — one for all ages — to celebrate health and happiness.”

The morning starts off with a full-body warm-up led by HV Arts Council board member, Dawn Berman, of The Pennington Studio for Dance. Then, multiple waves of runners and walkers will be sent onto the fun-run course passing through five color blast stations. The course ends with a closing celebration dance party, a short performance by dancers from The Pennington Studio for Dance, and a group color toss finale. 

The Color Fun Run and Walk, as the name suggests, is about fun. If one can walk for two miles and enjoys a good time, this event is a perfect fit. It is not timed. There is no pressure. Capture lasting memories at the colorful selfie station. Special recognition will be given to individuals or teams with the wackiest get-up! For refreshment, shave ice will be available for purchase.
