_ The 2022 ProYouth 5K and 2 Mile Color Run:
ProYouth is hosting our inaugural 5k run and 2 mile color run/walk. Come out and run in our competitive 5k, or bring the whole family and run, jog, or dance your way through our 2 mile course. We will throw in the color and the fun! With registration you will receive a participation medal and a white shirt to get blasted with color. There will be color stations throughout the fun run and powder will be in the air so bring a head covering if you wish. After your race, enjoy a snack and a colorful dance party with our DJ. All proceeds will benefit the programs and students who are part of the ProYouth afterschool network. Parents if you do not want to run/walk, you can sign the kids up to do the run/walk and just watch and take photos! See our Facebook page for race updates.
We will be having two races. Both the competitive race and color run will begin at 8:00 AM. The 5K race is for all of the serious competitors and people who wish not to be colorized. There will be a trophy awarded to the top male and female runner. The race will be timed. Results will be posted on our Run Sign Up page within 24-72 hours of the finish. Photos will also be taken at the finish line and uploaded onto our page. Please be aware that our course will be on the road and in the grass. The color run is open to people of all ages who want to run, walk, jog, or dance your way through the course. Throughout the fun run you will be blasted with color at the color stations. Photos will be taken at the finish line and along the course. Photos will be posted on our page within 24-72 hours of the finish.
