Washington County’s most colorful 5K was back for a third year! HEAL’s Color Splash engaged 1,000 people on September 12th at Fairgrounds Park in Hagerstown, MD. This 5K Run/Walk is a unique family event open to all ages and fitness levels. Participants get “splashed” with an array of powdered color throughout the course. The course runs through the beautiful Fairgrounds and Pangborn Parks in Hagerstown. Water feature stations, such as bubbles, super soaker and misting arch, were also added.
A Family Festival provides healthy food samples aligned to the USDA MyPlate, educational resources and kids obstacle course. Another fun tradition is HEAL’s post-event Celebration Splash where everyone has the opportunity for a simultaneous multi-color splash.
ALSO NEW IN 2015: HELICOPTER BALL DROP CONTEST
HEAL hosted a helicopter ball drop during packet pickup the evening before Color Splash. Numbered balls will be dropped by helicopter onto a field and then children ages 5-12 entered to grab them. A random drawing was held to determine winning number. The child with the winning number was named “Captain of Color Splash.” He was part of the exciting start to the event on Saturday morning by appearing on stage and waving the start flag.
MANY THANKS TO OUR COLOR STATION SPONSORS!
