Green River Revival

Join us for the 4th annual Green River Revival, a St. Patrick’s Day party taking place on Saturday, March 15. The celebration will kick off with the Color Me Green 5K, a trail race similar to the Color Run. Following the race, watch as the whitewater rapids turn bright green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, followed by live music, food and drink. The river will remain open to those eager to raft or kayak the green waters.

    Will the results of the Color Me Green 5K be posted on the website?

      Hi Holly, because Color Me Green was an un-timed race, we only captured the times of the top 5 male and female finishers. These can be found on the Color Me Green page.
