What has become one of the most popular events of the Cape May County 4-H Fair, the 4-H Color Run, returns for its fourth year. The 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk/Run will take place on Saturday, July 21 with same day registration starting at 8 a.m. followed by the Color Fun Run at 8:30 a.m. The race takes place at the 4-H Fairgrounds located at 355 Court House – South Dennis Rd. in Cape May Court House.
The Color Fun Run is an untimed race in which runners/walkers are doused from head to toe in different washable colors at various points along the race. There are only two rules: wear white at the 8:30 a.m. starting line to get the most color splatter, and finish covered in color with a smile on your face!
The Color Fun Run is a great family event that gives children and adults the opportunity to have fun together while getting exercise at the same time. So, if you love color and you like to walk or run, you can support the 4-H Program Advisory Council by participating in the 4-H Color Fun Run, or by stretching out along the race route to cheer on the runners by tagging them with a blast of color as they race to the finish line.
The cost to participate is $10. Call (609) 465-5115 ext. 3605 to register or for more information. Parking for the race is available in the ACCC parking lot next to the fairgrounds.
