Description

Please join the Wayne Valley Dance Team as they present their 2nd Annual Wayne Color Run Extravaganza! As those that participated last year this is not going to be your "run of the mill" color run! The Dance Team will be taking over Wayne Town Hall  (municipal building) AND Wayne Valley High School (black top and fields) to cover you with Blue (there are two shades) and White and a number of other colors... from head to toe! 

There will be a "Tunnel of Color" to kick things off followed followed by three (3) additional Color Stations where you'll be colorized! 

The Dance Team will be continuing its efforts to support St. Judes Children's Hospital in the process. Please mark your calendar then make your way to Wayne Town Hall (intersections of Valley Road and Preakness Ave) for one of the best Color Runs around!

Participants ages 5 through 18 receive a special price of $17! .There are also a number of Group/Family... "Smash Color Groups" rates. Register early as the individual and group/family rates will goes up each week until the event kicks off on October 1st!

As this is the 2nd Annual Wayne Color Run individual packets will be available (coming soon), this year... add that to the four (4) color stations and there will be plenty of color to go around. Then again... have some left over color... know where to score some... feel free to bring what you have and "surprise" your friends...

When attending the Wayne Color Run please ensure you wear protective eyewear and clothes that you are willing to part with. Remember the statement to be made is not of the cloth but the color! 

Carolina Blue Color Run Event tee guaranteed to the first 500 registrants... others while supplies last!

Why Support St Jude Children's Research Hospital?

Because of you, St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Families are free to focus on their child

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Discover how your contributions make this possible.

We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

Our founder believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life," and we’ve spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children.Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. Help us go even further in conquering childhood cancer.

Every donation counts

Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most — saving kids regardless of their financial situation. Approximately 75% of the budgeted costs of St. Jude are covered by public contributions.

Saving children everywhere

St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world. Find out more about our global impact.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can particpants go around a Color Station? Yes... but we are not sure why you would want to. The amount of color you are exposed to is up to you. If twice around is too much for you please feel free to join the fnishers at the start/finish line and cheer everyone on til the event concludes.

Can a stroller be used on the Color Run course? We would like to but given strollers come in all shapes and sizes and the course is "cross country like"... includes grass, gravel and some areas of uneven terrain we are erroring on the side of caution and unable to accomodate any strollers at the event... that is outside of those that want to spectate!

Is the Color Run timed? This years event is not timed. Its has been measured to 5K by a USATF Course measurer but not certified. Timing the event will be discussed in context of the 2018 event based on 2017 particpant commments. The main reason for not  scoring the color run is to ensure the course flows without issue. If the course is set and no changes are required after this year's event confidence is high that the event will be timed next year. That said, please come out and let us know what you think of the course! We think its a keeper!

Do I need to wear anything special for the color run? Old clothes, not your Sunday best is suggested. The temperature in early October is generally in the high 50s. We suggest dressing for the temperature of the day covering up as much as possible. We also would recommend wearing some form of protective eyewear. Those that frequent color runs know that the color pouder, although harmless can make its way to your face and potentially your eyes. Like a boy or girls scout "be prepared" to cover up when at a color station. The color throws will be in full effect and your safety is of the utmost importance first and foremost. Knowing that you are informed, be safe and by all means have fun!
