Easter is a time of celebration; what better way to GO FAR than coloring ourselves to sparkle!!
WE ARE GOING TO COLOR MORE THAN EASTER EGGS FOR THE BUNNY HOP 5K! WE ARE TURNING THIS EVENT INTO A COLOR-FILLED AND SPARKLING RUN!
WHAT THAT MEANS TO YOU…
We will have celebration powder at the start of this run, on the course and finish. The celebration powder and sparkle are all food based: colored cornstarch and edible glitter.
o Our shirts will be in white to catch all the fun colors!
o It does mostly wash out (Better to do so Sooner than Later)
o Want to still strut your color and bunny hop pride; spray the shirt with vinegar and iron it.
o Good idea to wear items you do not mind if the color sticks around. Especially, beware of this with your shoes.
o Protect your eyes or glasses with sunglasses if you choose.
o There is a cleaning station after the finish line to help blow dry you clean, but if you still want to strut your bunny hop pride or have a little hidden color, bring towels for your car!!
o You are given color packets at packet pick-up; that you throw in the air at the opening ceremony.
o There are color stations along the way. Color is not thrown at you; it is a colorful cloud in the air that you run through.
HE WHO LOOKS MOST LIKE AN EASTER EGG AT THE FINISH WINS!!!!
Our trophies will be for the Most Colorful Male and Female and boy and girl at the finish!!!
Color not your thing; you just want to run?
There will be a 1st wave for those who want to run without color and for time. We are not tracking time, but the race clock is set-up for you to view. We cannot guarantee a complete retreat from color as there may be trails left from those who chose this option. You will be identified to be color-free by a sticker on your race bib.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email OBXGOFAR@gmail.com.
We look forward to hopping down the bunny trail with you as our colors sparkle with our GO FAR spirit!!
Come join the fun and get a shirt, medal, and sweet treats to remember the day!! Most of all your celebration in this event will help us to continue to GO FAR!
