Battle Mountain hosting Color Run on Saturday, Oct. 21
EDWARDS — The Battle Mountain Super Boosters are hosting a fundraising 5K Color Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 21, at 9 a.m.
The goal is to raise money for the school’s CHSAA sports teams and clubs.
The event will begin and end behind Battle Mountain High School. Color Runs are popular across the U.S. It is a fun, non-timed run or walk through color stations — in this case four — where participants will get doused with a colored cornstarch powder as they pass through the station.
Rainbow of color
The end of the race will gather participants for a group color blast, making for a rainbow of color to finish off the palette. Participants are encouraged to dress up in fun and festive attire.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
The event cost is $45 through race day. Student registrations are $25. Registration includes: a white T-shirt with commemorative logo created by Battle Mountain’s resident artist, Max DeVito, an individual color packet for the post-race color throw, a bib with number to be entered into the post-race drawing and post-race refreshments. For more information and to register, please visit Active.com.
