Color the Hill 5K Fun Run

Color the Hill 5K Fun Run
Event on 2013-04-13 10:00:00

The Color the Hill 5K and Fun Run will be so much colorful fun, you’ll even forget you’re exercising! Whether your fitness routine is simply taking the dog for a stroll, or competing in marathons, the Color the Hill 5K will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life!  

On Saturday, April 13 at 10:00am spend the morning with your family and friends running (or walking) on the UNC Cross Country Course at Finley Fields getting messy and having a blast! 

Begin the run in a white t-shirt (any white T will work).  At the start line runners and walkers are blank canvases. By the finish line, you’ll look like a Jackson Pollock painting! 

As you make your way through the 5K course you’ll encounter five color stations:  green, purple, yellow, pink, and blue.  As the runners/walkers reach each station, you are blitzed by our volunteers with non-toxic colored powder.    The finish line will feature an epic color extravaganza!  Extra color packets will be for sale on-site – or order yours when you register.  

The proceeds from the run will benefit three local non-profits: the Academy of Information Technology of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, A Drink For Tomorrow and the SKJAJA Fund. 


The Academy of Information Technology is a program open to all high school students in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.   It introduces students to the broad career opportunities in a digital workforce. 

A Drink For Tomorrow is a UNC student-run organization that raises awareness and funds for the global water crisis.  Funds are used to construct sustainable water and sanitation projects in Latin America.

The SKJAJA Fund provides underprivileged local children the opportunity to participate in social and educational enrichment activities.   Each child who receives funding is asked to “pay it forward” in return.  

Register for the run at  The registration fees are for participants age 11 – 111.   Participants who pay the registration fee will receive a cool Color the Hill race t-shirt, sunglasses, race number, color packet to use at the finish line or after party, and a warm fuzzy feeling from donating to local charities. Kids ages 5 – 10 are only with a paying adult and get sunglasses, race number, and color packet. And children under 5 are free.  If you have questions, please contact
