A popular “color run” is coming to Elkton June 28 to benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Cecil County. Here are the details:
ELKTON, MD — The Color Vibe, a “vibrantly colorful” 5k fun run company, is hosting the Elkton, MD Color Vibe 5k full of VIBRANT color, music and a lot of fun on Saturday, June 28, 2014, held in Downtown Elkton at 9 a.m.
The Color Vibe is a unique 5k fun run series that is gaining popularity throughout the United States. Throughout the course, participants run, walk, or dance their way through color stations, where vibrant colors tie-dye white outfits and costumes. When it’s over, everyone is invited to stick around for a large colorful dance party hosted by a professional sound crew and DJ.
As their website states, “You are the canvas, and when you’re finished with this 5k run you’ll be an exciting and vivid masterpiece.”
The Color Vibe encourages runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels to participate. According to Nate Sorenson, Color Vibe Race Director, “The Color Vibe 5k is full of inspirational stories of runners and non-runners alike coming together to share a life experience, accomplish fitness goals, and become rainbow junkies. We do not time our 5k fun runs so every participant can take their time getting colored.” For a limited time only, Children 12 and under can participate for free.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity, The Boys and Girls Club of Cecil County. “We are excited to be able to work with the Boys and Girls Club. They are able to assist and enable the youth of Cecil County and help them reach their full potential.” Sorenson says.
To make this event unique, the Color Vibe uses a cornstarch-based colored powder to tie-dye participants. The colored powder is made in the USA and made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that’s been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series.
It’s non-toxic, 100% safe, and biodegradable. It also washes out easily from skin and hair.
The Color Vibe also offers special discounts and offers to businesses looking to tap into their health and wellness plans.
