For this year’s new “Chalk It Up” 5K theme, participants are encouraged to wear white
as they will be covered in a variety of colored powders as they run to produce fun
and unique patterns on both themselves and their clothing. The colored “chalk” is
really non-toxic cornstarch that is 100% safe for people and the environment. Costumes
are encouraged and there will be an award presented to the most colorful runner. Though
the run is for fun, overall male and female awards will also be presented.
