St. George UT’s Upcoming 5K’s and Track & Field Events
St. George UT will be hosting some great 5K’s and track & field events this month. The 5K will be for the Habitat for Humanity Southwest Utah and the Track & Field event will be for the Special Olympics of Utah. See below for all the details, and bring your friends and family to enjoy all the fun too.
St. George UT Events:
Color Me Rad 5K – This event will benefit the Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Utah. There may even be an additional 1,000 participants this year. The goal of the vent is to help the non-profit organization pay for 20% of new home construction for low-income families. Some of the money raised may also go to the A Brush of Kindness program that repairs damaged roofs, small projects of $500 or less, painting, landscaping or minor home repairs for those who can’t afford it.
There will be lots of fun events for all ages including getting bombarded with over 5,000lbs of colored cornstarch as you run through the course. The ending will be the best of all when runners declare themselves rad and toss individual bags of color in the air creating the final display of color. You can register for the event at www.colormerad.com.
