Donovan Color Run 5K Run/Walk Course Map

The Color Run 5K starts and finishes at Donovan High School.  We will do the traditional buckets of color at the beginning of the race as a group. Then on the racecourse, we will have color stations! Of course, if you don't want to hit all or any of the color stations you can run to the other side of the color station to skip it.  We will also have a water station at the start/finish line area.  The course is just over 1 mile in length so 5k runners will run it 3 times which means you will run by our color and sound station multiple times!
