ColorBurst 5K, in conjunction with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, is announcing that a 5K run will occur at Eastwood Field on Saturday, July 23.
This family-friendly event blends color, music and “good vibes” against the backdrop of a 5K fun-run.
At each interval, the CB5K crew will blast participants with non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, washable, water-based paint from the sidelines.
The event also will feature an interactive pre-party and post-party with DJs, MCs and giveaways.
A portion of the race ticket sale proceeds will go to Akron Children’s Hospital-Mahoning Valley, the Scrappers’ charitable partner.
Tickets are available at colorburst5k.com, with a limited number of early tickets available starting at $32.50. Early tickets include a CB5K T-shirt, CB5K headband and a personal sized bottle of color.
Participants can create their own team name and register with friends, or as individuals. The 5K also includes one free children’s registration (12 and under) with every registered adult.
