The first annual Sampson County Arts Council R-U-N 2 the ARTS 5K Color Run and Fun Run, a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality, will be held Saturday, Nov. 7 at 8:30 a.m. at the Victor R. Small House.

Organizers are asking participants to come prepared to be drenched with color as a fun family outing or get ahead of the crowd and be prepared to run your personal best before the color erupts. We look forward to seeing. This event is for all ages, walkers, runners, teams, and anybody just willing to be a cheerleader.

Feel free to wear your normal running attire, the powder will wash out. For those registered by Oct. 16, a t-shirt will be provided in your race packet. The start-line window will open at 8:30 a.m. beginning with timed runners. Color will begin five minutes later. Make sure you plan to be at the race in plenty of time to enjoy pre-race festivities including music, dancing, warm-up stretching and giveaways.

Chunking paint at race participants and making people smile are fun, but it is also important to give back to the community. As a non-profit organization, the Sampson Arts Council is excited to be presenting the Inaugural R-U-N 2 the ARTS 5K Color Run and Fun Run to raise money to support the arts in our community.
