'Color Me Fall' 5K run in Herrin | Events
HERRIN, IL (KFVS) - The Christian Life Center is hosting a "Color Me Fall 5K Foot Race" Friday night that includes "throwing colors" on runners.
The Christian Life Center is located at 1901 North Park Avenue in Herrin, Illinois.
Organizers say "Color Runs" are the latest trend in the racing community, and will be the first of its kind in southern Illinois.
Participants will wear white shirts and while on the race course, color will be thrown on them. Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book.
By the end, organizers they look like they fell into a vat of colored goodness.
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: such as yellow, orange, pink or blue.
As the runners/walkers reach the kilometer, they are plastered in a colored corn starch.
