Now in its third year, this evening race is sponsored by the First Pentecostal Church in Durham.  The run will be on trails at the C.M. Herndon Park in Durham located at 511 Scott King Road.  The 5K begins at 6 pm.

Like the Color Runs in the past, this event will feature volunteers throwing colored corn starch on the participants along the course.  For the best effect, it is recommended participants wear white t-shirts.

Participants in the 5K have the option of signing up as being timed or not timed.  Those who elected to be included in the official results will also be eligible for overall and age group awards.  Those who elect not to be in the official results are usually those who are just participating to support the cause for which the event is being held and do not care about having their results published or being eligible for awards.  But like in the mile, all participants will be able to see their finish times on the clock at the finish line.

The 5K entry fee is $30 which includes a choice of a long-sleeved or short-sleeved shirt in adult sizes.  All youth shirts are short-sleeved.  In order to guarantee a t-shirt, one must be registered by August 20.  After September 4th, the fee increases to $35.  On race day the 5K entry fee is $40 with no guarantee of a shirt.

The fee for the one-mile run/walk is $15 with no shirt or $25 with a shirt. August 20 is the last date when the t-shirt option is available.  On race day the entry fee is $30 with no guarantee of a shirt.

Pre-registered entrants can pick up their packets and late entrants can register beginning at 4:30 pm on race day at the Park.

In the 5K, awards will be given to the top three male finishers overall, to the top three female finishers overall, and to the top finishers in each of the following age groups (both sexes): 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70-over.
