5K Run: 8:00am
1K Run/Walk: 8:30am
You’ve seen them everywhere. The 5K with a colorful twist. Join us as we “Color the Creek” with this one of a kind family fun run! Run (or walk) the 5K or 1K courses along the banks of Cypress Creek as we kick off the CreekFest 2015 festival. The 5K and 1K runs will take place in Harris County Precinct 4’s Collins Park and Meyer Park on paved and unpaved trails.
Participants will be covered with color at each kilometer and are invited to help “Color the Creek” at the color party after finishing the run. Each registered 5K runner will receive a white t-shirt (to collect all that fun color) and a packet of powdered dye. The color is safe, cornstarch-based dye that’s even gluten-free…though we don’t recommend eating it! Color the Creek is generously sponsored by CHI – St. Luke’s The Vintage Hospital.
5K Color the Creek (Individual) – $40 (includes t-shirt & color powder packet)
5K Color the Creek (Team Registration) – $30/individual; minimum 10 members (includes t-shirt & color powder packet)
