Join Us Virtually for the 5K Color Run if You Can’t Make It To the Course on 9/23

How Virtual Participation Works:

  1. Choose a date and time that suits you to complete your 5K run or walk between Sept 23rd and October 5th.

  2. Click here to download race bibs and fun signs to use in your pictures.​​​​ Write in your own favorite number on your race bib and attach it to your shirt. 

  3. Pick a location to run or walk. Wayne County has a lot of great places to run and walk. The Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, Wayne Greenway, Old Waynesborough Park, around the hospital or Wayne Community College, or in your own neighborhood are all great locations to walk or run for this event. You can also check the Facebook event to see if anyone else is walking or running in your neighborhood.

  4. Use an app like Strava, RunKeeper, Mapping Run, or Google Maps to track your distance. If you do track your distance, take a screenshot of your course and time once you finish your route. 

  5. Wear your race shirt and douse yourself and your friends with color before you start, or while you are walking or running. Want more color? Come by 203 Cox Blvd on Sept 26th between 3-6:30 to get some!

  6. Capture your colorful moments by taking photos and videos during your run or walk. Click here to download fun signs to use in your pictures.

  7. Share your vibrant journey with us on social media using the hashtag #CuresfortheColorsVirtualRun2023. Upload your pictures and timing information to our Facebook page. 

  8. Check our social media on Oct 6th to see everyone’s results and get the link to download your virtual race certificate.
