Color Me Au-Some 5K Walk/Run is a charity event with a fun and colorful twist where participants are plastered with color bombs of dry tempera paint powder at stations throughout the course. Participants are encouraged to wear white t-shirts to engage in the “Color Me Process.”
The Color Me Au-Some 5K course incorporates one of the city’s oldest and most recognizable landmarks, the Wheeling Suspension Bridge. The course starts at the picturesque waterfront, goes through downtown, over the Suspension Bridge, around Wheeling Island, back over the Suspension Bridge, and down Main Street returning to the Waterfront.
Following the race, participants can enjoy refreshments, door prizes, awards ceremony, and music.
Awards will be given to the top 5 female and male walkers and runners and the top three female and male finishers in the following categories: 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, top finisher in 70+.
Children ages 3 & under will pay no registration fee but parents must register them and sign the waiver.
All participants that register as walkers MUST walk. If you register as a runner, you are permitted to run and walk.
