CASA Colorful 5K and Family Fun Run in September
Register now for Texarkana’s annual 5k colorful run and family fun day. Bring your family and friends to Trinity's cross country track for colorful bursts of fun and support the services Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) provides to more than 1,000 abused or neglected children in our community annually.
The third annual Amanda Fussell Woodman Memorial CASA Colorful 5K and Family Fun Run will be held on Saturday, September 19 at Trinity Baptist Church. Early registration is at 8 AM with a special children’s run at 8:30 AM and the adult 5K is at 9 AM. There will be a warm up conducted by Anytime Fitness trainers, children’s run led by Anytime Fitness runners, a bounce house, magician, sno-cones, samplings from Orange Leaf, food provided by Super I Foods and lots of fun as you are powdered on the trail.
This race is in honor of Amanda's dedication to CASA. It is a 3.1 mile fitness run/walk on a cross country trail. The run begins on an open field and winds through a dirt trail. The family walk will be on the sidewalk around the church for a one mile walk. Be sure to wear clothing that you won't be upset if the color doesn't come out in the wash.
What is a Colorful Run?
The race begins with each participant releasing a bag of color into the air creating a beautiful burst of color! Stations will also be located throughout the race route for you to be showered with brightly colored powder to turn your white shirt into a color explosion. The color is made from Eco-friendly food colored cornstarch. Please wear clothing that you are not worried about getting stained. Most of the powder will come out but there may be some residue.
