New to color runs? Totally okay! Come check out the Morrison-Bruce Center’s ColorBlast 5k! Whether you choose to run or walk the 5K course located on JMU’s campus is completely up to you. Colored powder will be thrown on participants at every kilometer of the course, and then blasted on everyone at the finish line! After you finish, you are invited to stay around to play tailgating games such as corn hole or frisbee while you wait for the ColorBlast Raffle to start. Yes, you heard right - when you check in the morning of the run, you will be entered for a chance to win gift cards to your favorite restaurants and other prizes. You will also receive a FREE t-shirt upon registration!

We will kick of the morning at 9am with our Daisy Dash, 1/2 mile run, for children under 12 years old. These participants will also get to take part in the color fun. The ColorBlast 5K will then start at 9:30am, with several waves of runners so you can pick your pace and get the most color possible.
