A VIRTUAL 10K/5K/1 Mile powdered COLOR run to benefit the Journey of Hope Cancer Support Fund, partnership of the CarolinaEast Foundation. You can complete this race from any location of your choosing! It is not a timed event this year, and therefore can be completed at a pace comfortable for you.

It is still a COLOR run and color packets will be mailed to you prior to the event as well as your tee shirt to wear if you’d like while you complete the run/walk. Take photos to upload to the race site of your very own VIRTUAL COLOR run, to gather as a community via pictures  in these rather trying times. Encourage your family friends across our nation, from any location during the week of Nov 7-14, to join you this year in doing the Craig Brake Memorial Colors 4 Cancer run/walk. 

Download the RaceJoy app to track your training and to upload your distances on race day. This is not required to complete the race, but may be a fun way to celebrate your achievements.

You can still gather a team to complete this event, and this is encouraged! See how much mileage your team can rack up. Don’t forget to text your photos to Sheri @ 252-671-1893. The team with the most creative, spirited and fun photo will win our “Team Spirit” award. If you aren’t on a team, send them anyways! You have a chance to win a gift! Can’t wait to see these photos!!
